He’s an animal – Arsenal defender, Oleksandr Zinchenko makes claim about Jesus

Arsenal defender, Oleksandr Zinchenko, has claimed that striker Gabriel Jesus was the best player in training at Manchester City.

Zinchenko described Jesus as an ‘animal’ in football, adding that the attacker is special.

Zinchenko and Jesus were former teammates at Man City in the past before they left Pep Guardiola’s side for Arsenal.

Jesus spent five years at Man City, scoring 95 goals in 236 appearances.

The Brazilian also helped the Citizens win four Premier League titles and four domestic cups.

“He is a special person on and off the pitch,” Zinchenko told Sky Sports.

“I have learnt a lot of things from him. He is a great example of how hard you need to work every day with the right attitude. In the simple exercises in training, some of the guys might give 50%. Him? He’s an animal.

“I was watching him at Man City and was like, wow! He was always the best on the pitch in training, always. He’s an amazing talent. I know he worked so hard to get back from injury, so it’s a pleasure to have this kind of teammate.”
