Arsenal legend, Thierry Henry has said he would have loved to play with Gabriel Jesus.
Henry, speaking after the Gunners’ 2-1 win over Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday, hailed Jesus’ “overall contribution” to the team makes up for his lack of goals.
The Brazilian set-up Gabriel Martinelli to open the scoring, before curling home a sublime second against the LaLiga side.
“I will be honest with you, and I think, for example, and it’s a massive example and a massive thing – I’d have loved to have played with him.
“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.
“But the goal he scored tonight won the game, that pass [to Martinelli] won the game. And yes, earlier I was talking about the all-round play but those two opportunities were magnificent, that’s exactly how you should play,” Henry told CBS Sports.
