Gabriel Jesus has been fantastic since signing for the Gunners last summer. Yes, he’s not been as prolific as he probably should’ve been. But over the past 12 months, but his all-round performances have been brilliant. He played a huge part in the Gunners’ title charge last season.
What Thierry Henry had to say about Gabriel Jesus
Indeed, the Arsenal legend says that the only problem with the prolific striker is that he’s always getting injured. He went on to claim that the player’s fitness is not only an issue for him. But for Arsenal as well.
“The only problem with Gabriel Jesus is that he often gets injured, not only for him but for us,” Henry said.
Some of the best players of all-time are so good because they were so reliable. They were so rarely injured, but, sadly, that isn’t a trait that big Gabby Jesus has.
The striker’s body seems to be failing him way too often. His absence from this Arsenal team is being noticed in the big games.
There’s a reason Arsenal continue to be linked with a move for Ivan Toney in January. They probably do need a new striker who they can rotate with Jesus. They also want another one to rely on more often if they are to truly challenge for the biggest prizes in the game.
Jesus is a fantastic footballer overall. Although he’s more than good enough to play for Arsenal, if he’s not fit, he’s of no use to anyone. He needs to be true to himself here everytime possible and try to remove the injury part of his game to improve both Arsenal and himself.
