“I don’t think he’ll return from injury anytime soon because he’s the only injury player who isn’t responding well to treatment, and his case is the worst”- National team doctor reveals ‘brutal’ Arsenal star is no where near fit following his recent injury blow, which might put him out until 2023.
Despite being called up for international duty, Brazil’s national team doctor has indicated that Gabriel Jesus is still recovering from an injury.
According to journalist Chris Wheatley, Rodrigo Lasmar has stated that Brazil is collaborating with Arsenal to establish the best course of action for Jesus amid his latest injury setback.
The attacker is back on the treatment table after suffering a thigh injury that has sidelined him since October, with Arsenal missing Jesus’ menace in attack.
Indeed, this recent update is the last thing Arsenal fans wanted to hear, and Jesus is now unlikely to play for Brazil in their November games this month.
“We have maintained contact with the club’s medical department and the athlete,” Lasmar stated. He is healing from a muscular injury in his right thigh.
“I’ll consult with the doctors and Edu.” He did not practice with the team, is unlikely to return, and has internal communication with clubs and national teams.”
Brazil never should have called up Gabriel Jesus after injury news

Brazil was always taking a risk by including Jesus in their team for this month’s international matches, and the choice now appears to have backfired in a painful way.
Jesus now appears to be destined to miss every international game this November, having undertaken the lengthy travel to South America when a stay in north London would have been preferable.
With Martin Odegaard still in England, Brazil and Arsenal should have made a similar decision with Jesus rather than flying him halfway across the world for a game he won’t play in.
And now, Arsenal fans must sit and pray that Jesus does not suffer a relapse, as the striker will be sorely missed when the Premier League returns at the end of this month.
