Arsenal’s Gabriel Jesus Admits to Persistent Pain from Knee Injuries

Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus has revealed that he cannot recall a time when he played football without experiencing pain, highlighting the ongoing struggles he faces due to knee injuries.

The 27-year-old underwent knee surgery following an injury that sidelined him from Brazil’s World Cup campaign in December 2022, causing him to miss significant playing time. Since then, Jesus has suffered three additional knee injuries within a span of just over a year.

“Sometimes I feel it [my knee],” Jesus admitted, indicating the enduring discomfort he grapples with. “I don’t remember the last time I played football without pain. I try to keep strong in mind.”

Despite his physical challenges, Jesus has made 15 Premier League starts for Arsenal this season, contributing four goals to the team’s campaign. His perseverance in the face of adversity reflects his determination to continue contributing on the pitch despite the hurdles he faces.

With rumors swirling about Arsenal’s potential pursuit of another striker, including names like Ivan Toney from Brentford, Jesus remains focused on his role within the team. He emphasized his commitment to training hard and improving his game, leaving any decisions about squad reinforcements to the club management.

“As speculation swirls around about new signings, my job remains the same—to train hard and give my best on the field,” Jesus remarked. “They [the club] already know if they want one or not. My focus is on improving and performing whenever I’m called upon.”
