Arsenal manager Arteta reveals Gabriel Jesus bringing 'special energy to the group'

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has revealed how Gabriel Jesus has brought a ‘special energy’ to the first-team squad.

Signed from Manchester City this summer, Jesus has hit the ground running for the north London club.

The Brazilian striker has scored in both of Arsenal’s preseason friendlies and will look to continue that run against Orlando City on Thursday.

“He has a smile on his face and he feels important,” Arteta said. “He’s bringing a special energy to the group and big experience.”

For his part, Jesus added: “I’m really happy to be here, the way everyone welcomed me was amazing. I’m so happy to be part of this group.”
