Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has spoken about his expectation from Gabriel Jesus in the team ahead of the Gunner’s 2022/23 premier league opener against Crystal Palace.
Arteta said Jesus may be getting a new role in the Arsenal team different from what he played at Manchester City but he expects quick adaptation from the Brazillian as a world-class player.
Naija News recalls Arsenal brought in Jesus in a £45 million transfer and the striker has been in superlative form for the team in pre-season.
The Gunners boss however said no less is expected of him.
In his words, “when you bring in top players who are coming from top clubs where they have been extremely successful over the years, they are going to meet that expectation.
“The role Gabriel has here is going to be very different to the role he had at his previous club, that needs some adaptation and some time.
“He’s done it fantastically well, we are surprised how quickly he has done it, but we have to share that responsibility.
“He’s an enormous talent, a player with a mentality that is so contagious, and he is going to give us a lot, but it is a team contribution at the end of the day,” Arteta said.
