Arteta’s Arsenal style attracted Jesus

Gabriel Jesus has explained why he chose Arsenal ahead of other Premier League clubs in the summer.

The striker told ESPN Brasil that he is now playing with a smile again after being convinced by Mikel Arteta’s playing philosophy.

It’s a far cry from the role the 25-year-old should play at Manchester City.

“It was different at City. The striker didn’t touch the ball that often, and when it was time to touch the ball, it wasn’t the striker because [Pep Guardiola] In the end he brought a midfielder closer,” said the Brazilian.

“I accepted it for a while, but eventually I said, ‘I want something different for myself.’ I thanked him, he understood, and we continued on.

“I spoke a lot with Arteta about Arsenal’s style. He knows me, I know him, I understood what he wanted from me.

“Now I’m free on the pitch, playing football with a smile on my face and trying to do my best all the time.”
