Brazil legend Ronaldinho expects “big things” from Gabriel Jesus this season and has tipped the Arsenal star to show he is one of the best players in Europe.

Jesus completed his move from Manchester City to the Gunners in the summer and has already made a big impact up north London club.

The Brazil international enjoyed a home debut to remember as he scored twice and assisted twice in a 4-2 win against Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium.

Jesus has helped the Gunners to all three points in each of their opening two Premier League matches this season and will be hoping to make it three wins from three against Bournemouth at the weekend.

The 25-year-old has impressed at City but has been forced to play second fiddle to Sergio Aguero for most of his career at the Etihad Stadium.

Ronaldinho believes Jesus was “never given the love a player of his quality deserves” at City.

“When Gabriel joined Manchester City, I said he would become one of the best players in the world. When he was given the chance he showed what he could do, but at Manchester City he was never shown the love that a player of his quality deserves,” Ronaldinho said. A mirror.

“At Arsenal he was given the opportunity to become a coordinator, the coach and the fans showed him love and he is already paying it forward.

“I expect big things from him this season – he will repay the love shown to him by showing that he is not only one of the best players in the Premier League, but also in Europe.”

Ronaldinho is also confident the Gunners will qualify for the Champions League with a top-four finish and even thinks a title challenge could be on the cards.

“Arsenal will be back in the top four this season with the signings they’ve made – maybe they can even go further and challenge for the title,” Ronaldinho added.

“Manchester City look very strong and they will be favourites, but anything is possible in football.”
