As the excitement for Arsenal’s first match in seven years builds, Gabriel Jesus admits he used to skip class in Brazil to watch Champions League games.
Fans of Arsenal have been waiting for their team to compete in the Champions League group stage for seven years.
Historically, patience has paid off. Consider the animosity that led to Arsene Wenger’s resignation and the difficulties that have persisted under Unai Emery’s management.
However, today there is optimism in the air as they are considered fourth favorites to win Europe’s largest championship.’Gabriel Jesus, who has scored 20 goals in 38 Champions League matches, reminisced about skipping class to watch Europe’s best when he heard the theme music being played by his teammates on Monday.
Before Wednesday’s game against PSV Eindhoven, he joked, “Some of them were joking in the gym, putting the music on.” Everyone is overjoyed because “a club like Arsenal cannot stay without playing in that competition.”When I was younger, I often skipped class to watch, much to my mother’s chagrin.
You may sаy, “It all begins there.” The music was unique, as were the best nightclubs. It’s a new ballgame, a different kind of contest. The higher-quality clubs are what set this apart.
Jesus is confident in his team’s chances of winning the tournament because of his previous success in Europe while playing for Manchester City.
“Of course,” he added, “we believe we can win it.” We go into every competition with the intention of winning it, and the Champions League is no exception.Because we’re representing Arsenal, we’d be fools to believe otherwise. We have to hold on to hope.
Having a potentially winnable group with Lens and Sevilla is the culmination of Mikel Arteta’s team’s transition from spectators to contenders.
‘Every time I watched it and we weren’t there, I felt it,’ the Arsenal manager added.
That strеss is all on you, you know. When I’m in charge, it’s my duty to get this team into the greatest tournaments so that they can compete for titles like the Champions League.
It took some work, but we finally made it, and we should take advantage of the situation.
