As quoted by Independent Sports, he said:
Gabriel Jesus is a brilliant signing, an amazing signing really. Mikel had the player at Manchester City and he’s a top forward, an incredible centre forward.
He’s probably got every facet to his game as a number nine: can drop in, can link play, is also a threat on your backline as well, endless work-rate in terms of pressing and leading the line from that sense.
It’s a real challenge for us at the weekend to try and keep him quiet, he’s a big player for them.
