Ronaldinho explains the difference Gabriel Jesus is encountering at Arsenal after Man City departure, tips Arsenal for title push

Because he is feeling “the love” at Arsenal, Ronaldinho believes Gabriel Jesus will prove he is one of the best players in the world this season.

And the former PSG, Barcelona, and Milan star has backed his compatriot to lead the Gunners back into the Champions League – and even mount a surprise title challenge.

The former Manchester City striker has had a fantastic start to his Arsenal career, scoring seven goals in pre-season and then twice against Leicester City.

Jesus’ performances have propelled Arsenal to the top of the table after only two games, alongside his former club Manchester City.

And his new coach, Mikel Arteta, has lavished him with praise, and he has quickly become a fan favorite.

His inspired displays for the North London club come after six seasons at the Etihad Stadium, where he was never the first-choice striker – and Pep Guardiola did not stop his £45 million transfer.

And 2005 Ballon d’Or winner Ronaldinho, now 42, said: “When Gabriel joined Manchester City I said he would go on to be one of the best players in the world. When he was given a chance, he showed what he was capable of – but at Manchester City he was never shown the love a player of his quality deserves.

“At Arsenal he has been given the chance to be the focal point, he has been shown the love by the coach and the fans, and already he is repaying that. This season I expect big things from him – he will repay the love shown in him by showing he is not just one of the best players in The Premier League but also in Europe.”

After losing the North London derby and a must-win game at Newcastle last season, Arsenal dropped to fifth place and allowed Tottenham to take the final Champions League spot.

But Arteta has been backed in the transfer market once more, with Oleksandr Zinchenko (£32m) and Fabio Vieira (£34m) joining Jesus, 25, in a revitalized Arsenal.

During his brilliant career, Ronaldinho won the title in Brazil, Spain, and Italy, as well as the 2002 World Cup.

And the Brazilian predicted: “Arsenal will get back into the top four this season with the signings they have made – maybe they can even achieve more and challenge for the title. Manchester City look very strong and they will be favourites – but in football anything is possible.”
