HE IS BACK! Arsenal Boss Arteta Speaks On GABRIEL Jesus’s Return To His Team

Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta has said he will not rush Gabriel Jesus back into action after the player returned to training with the team.

Jesus already has five goals and provided seven assists for the Gunners following his £45million transfer from Manchester City in July.

But he has been out of action since he sustained a knee injury at the World Cup with Brazil and had surgery in early December.

Arteta finds himself without Eddie Nketiah and Leandro Trossard injured and could be tempted to speed up Jesus’ return.

“We will try not to rush him back, we will try to make a fair assessment between what he needs and when is comfortable.

“Everything is going well, he needs time as well to get himself that confidence and that physical state that is necessary to compete with a free mind and once he’s free to do that, we will throw him in,” Arteta said while addressing reporters on Wednesday, ahead of their match at Sporting CP in the Europa League round of 16 on Thursday.
