Ronaldinho explains why Arsenal’s new signing will explode at the Emirates

Brazilian football legend, Ronaldinho, believes Gabriel Jesus is set to explode at Arsenal because he has the support of his manager and the love of the fans.

The attacker has just moved to the Emirates from Manchester City. They are one of the biggest clubs in the world and have been more successful than Arsenal in recent seasons.

Yet he swapped the Etihad for the Emirates as Arsenal looks to bolster their squad and become one of the title challengers again.

Jesus was never the number one striker at City and the champions could even play many games without a centre-forward.

However, at Arsenal, he is their main goal outlet, and the team plays in a way that favours the ball ending with him scoring.

Ronaldinho believes this is why he will achieve more at Arsenal.

He said, as quoted by Mirror Football:

“When Gabriel joined Manchester City I said he would go on to be one of the best players in the world. When he was given a chance, he showed what he was capable of – but at Manchester City he was never shown the love a player of his quality deserves.

“At Arsenal he has been given the chance to be the focal point, he has been shown the love by the coach and the fans, and already he is repaying that. This season I expect big things from him – he will repay the love shown in him by showing he is not just one of the best players in The Premier League but also in Europe.”

Just Arsenal Opinion

Jesus has joined a club that will support him in every sense of the word and players need this kind of environment to do better.

The Brazilian has started life at the Emirates very well and we can expect more to come from him.

As he gets more used to his new environment, he should score even more goals.

  1. Thank god we hired Arteta or we never would of got this lucky. Any of us can debate Arteta back and forth but one thing that is true Jesus and Zinchenko would not be here otherwise. Both from his recommendation to buy them and their desire to work with the assistant they valued so highly at City.

  2. “Jesus was never the number one striker at City and the champions could even play many games without a centre-forward.”

    I’m no insider, but what I read about Jesus at City is that when he started there he was the No1 striker. In fact he was so good that City were talking about selling Aguero.

    Then Jesus broke his foot and Aguero came in and did well. As is often the way, it’s hard to shift someone who’s playing well, so Jesus became “the competition”.

    He waited his time, but when Aguero left and still City didn’t play Jesus often as a proper striker, as the second part of the quoted sentence said, they often played without a striker… and then to add insult to injury, they signed Haaland. At that point he’d had enough.

    1. BTW In the first episode of All or Nothing, in the Man City 5-0 thrashing, watching the first goal was interesting.

      Jesus coming through the middle, then he appears on the right wing, delivers a cross right onto the head of an open man near the 6-yard box.

      I’m impressed by how often he’s involved in scoring the first goal, which is often the hardest, with the most pressure. He should be a great signing for us.
