“We always joke about it” – Gabriel Jesus shares Champions League request he made to Arsenal teammate Kai Havertz

Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus recently said that he and his teammate Kai Havertz often joke about the Germany international having won a Champions League final against the Brazilian.Havertz and Jesus locked horns during the 2021-22 Champions League final, played between Chelsea and Manchester City, their respective former clubs. The Blues achieved European triumph thanks to Havertz’s first-half strike, winning the game 1-0.

Jesus joined the North Londoners in the summer of 2022, following the conclusion of that season, while Havertz followed suit ahead of the current campaign. The Brazilian forward has now opened up about his request to the former Bayer Leverkusen forward when they became teammates.When asked what Havertz has brought to the table at Arsenal this season, Jesus replied (via football.london):

”A lot, we are always joking that he won the Champions League against me and I always say I want to win one with him!”

Jorginho, whom the Gunners signed in January for £12 million, was a part of the Chelsea 11 that faced Manchester City as well. Speaking about the Italian midfielder, Jesus added:

”We always joke [about it], but now I want to win with him and Jorginho as well. He is an amazing player and the way he plays he is so strong and tall, with his quality as well he helps us a lot. Quietly like me, he is always fighting and helping the team and the way this guy has arrived is massive. We are very happy we have him.”
