Thierry Henry shares Arsenal’s one big problem with Gabriel Jesus

Thierry Henry has expressed his admiration for Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus but acknowledges that Arsenal faces a challenge concerning him and his history of injuries.

Since joining Arsenal from Manchester City last year, the Brazilian player has faced various fitness challenges, and he is presently sidelined due to a hamstring issue.

Initially brought in as Arsenal’s primary striker, the 26-year-old managed only 24 starts in the Premier League last season and has participated in just four matches this current campaign.

While Henry appreciates Gabriel Jesus’ performance during play, citing a notable goal against Sevilla in the recent Champions League match, he acknowledges that the persistent fitness issues pose a significant concern.

“When you see that goal (Jesus’s against Sevilla), that’s a great strike,” Henry told CBS Sports.

“The only problem with Gabriel Jesus is that he often gets injured. Unfortunately for him and us.”

In the Champions League, Gabriel Jesus has enjoyed a successful season, scoring three goals in three appearances. However, in the Premier League since the beginning of the campaign, he has only found the net once.

Thierry Henry has previously praised the forward for his overall contribution to the team, emphasizing that even if he isn’t scoring prolifically, playing alongside him would bring significant benefits.

“I’d have loved to have played with him,” said the Gunners legend. “He’s a great guy to have around, I’m sure if you ask anyone they’d love to play with him.

“Is he a guy who is going to score you 25, 30 [goals]? I don’t know, I’d like to think so. Is he going to be the best goalscorer ever in the history of the game? We all know that’s not really him but what he offers and what he does for a team is second to none.”
