“He’s a mediocre player and shouldn’t be playing for a big club like Arsenal”- Arsenal icon Ian Wright says 26 years old Arsenal who is loved by the fans is not good enough to even play for his country and will always get dropped
‘He’s mediocre’… 26-year-old Arsenal player now told he’s not good enough to play for his country.
Arsenal legend Ian Wright has recently voiced strong criticism against 26-year-old Arsenal star Gabriel Jesus, asserting that the player is mediocre and not deserving of a place at a prominent club like Arsenal.
Wright goes further to question Jesus’ suitability for representing his country, suggesting that he would consistently face exclusion from the national team due to his perceived lack of quality.
Despite being considered one of Arsenal’s standout performers when in top form, Jesus has found himself under scrutiny, particularly concerning his performances for the Brazil national squad.
The controversial call-up by Brazil boss Fernando Diniz has ignited a debate about Jesus’ capabilities on the international stage.
Wright’s remarks, labeling Jesus as mediocre, have sparked discussions about the striker’s overall standing in the football world.
The Arsenal striker, known for his versatility, goal-scoring prowess, playmaking abilities, and tireless work ethic, has been a key asset for Mikel Arteta.
The manager values Jesus for his well-rounded skill set, a sentiment echoed by many in the football community.
Jesus’ recent injury, sustained in Arsenal’s victory over Sevilla last month, has sidelined him for the past six games, raising questions about his inclusion in the Brazil national squad while nursing an injury.
Former Brazil international Neto, commenting on the situation, expressed frustration at Jesus’ call-up, highlighting concerns about the player’s lack of recent game time and training due to his injury.
Neto’s critique goes beyond the injury aspect, questioning Jesus’ track record in international competitions, citing a lack of goals in two World Cups.
The former Brazil international compares Jesus unfavorably to legendary Brazilian forwards such as Careca, Ronaldo, Romário, and Vavá.
Despite the controversy surrounding Jesus’ national team inclusion, there’s optimism about his imminent return from injury.
The Brazilian striker, who has been absent for both Arsenal and Brazil in recent competitions, is reportedly in the final stages of recovery.
There’s even speculation that he could make a comeback for the game against Argentina, providing a significant boost for both Arsenal and Brazil.
As Arsenal navigates through fixtures without Jesus, his absence has been felt, with the team’s attacking dynamics altered.
The anticipation of his return, potentially in the match against Brentford after the international break, has Gunners’ fans hopeful for an enhanced offensive performance with Jesus back in the lineup.
