Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus names Ronaldo and two Man City players in his dream five-a-side team

Gabriel Jesus has named two Manchester City players in his dream five-a-side team featuring Brazilian trio Roberto Firmino, Neymar and Ronaldo Nazario.

The 26-year-old forward, who scored for Premier League leaders Arsenal in their clash against Luton on Tuesday night, has played alongside some serious talent for club and country.

After completing a £27 million move to Manchester City in the summer of 2016, he lifted four league titles alongside the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Sergio Aguero and Fernandinho.

In fact, when Jesus was asked to name his dream five-a-side in a recent interview with beIN Sports, the striker named no-nonsense midfielder Fernandinho in his squad alongside Ederson.

Jesus, who wasn't allowed to pick any Arsenal players, also opted for Brazilian counterparts Neymar, Roberto Firmino and 'R9' Ronaldo to complete his so-called dream team.

Arsenal teammate Martin Odegaard joined Jesus for the interview, and the Norwegian midfielder was also asked to pick his ideal five-a-side team.

He handed legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon a place between the sticks before naming Sergio Ramos, Mesut Ozil, Eden Hazard and fellow countryman Erling Haaland to complete his dream team.

Last year, the great Ronaldinho heaped praise on Jesus by naming him as one of the best players in the Premier League.

Ronaldinho, who also said in 2017 that Jesus has the ability to surpass Lionel Messi as the world’s greatest player, made his feelings known in an interview with The Mirror.

“When Gabriel joined Manchester City I said he would go on to be one of the best players in the world," the former Barcelona forward said.

"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.”

He added: "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.”
