The new season in England is expected to start soon, and Arsenal has suffered a major blow.
The Gunners, who kick off their official matches this Sunday as they challenge Manchester City for the Community Shield trophy, will play their first Premier League match against Nottingham Forest after a week.
However, the atmosphere among the Londoners is not calm as Gabriel Jesus will be out for several weeks due to recurring knee issues inherited from the previous season.
This was confirmed by the coach Mikel Arteta himself, who emphasized that the Brazilian will miss several weeks of the new season, as he is unable to take the field.
“Unfortunately, Gabriel Jesus has felt some knee discomfort and it is necessary for him to be checked and resolve this situation. I don’t believe it’s something serious, but he will miss a few weeks of the new season.”
“I’m very sorry because he was getting back into the right form and now we’re losing him again. However, the right decision is to protect the player and now we’ll try to reintegrate him until he returns to optimal condition.”
“It’s not a new injury, but rather the one from the previous season when he had to undergo surgery,” declared the Spanish coach.
