Gabriel reflects on his first few months at Arsenal
Gabriel says that he is settling in well to life at Arsenal following his move to the club back in January
Gabriel says he is settling in well to life at Arsenal and revealed that the quality of the Premier League was the primary motivating factor in his transfer to Emirates Stadium.
The Brazilian centre-half joined the Gunners from Villarreal back in January and has impressed during his five Premier League appearances for Arsene Wenger’s men so far this season.
Arsenal have won all of the six games in all competitions in which he has featured since his switch to the north London club.
And the 24-year-old is certain that he made the right decision in opting to join the Gunners at the turn of the year.
“Every player knows his quality, we have top-quality training facilities and an excellent team,” Gabriel told Arsenal.com.
“If you look at our individual qualities we make a great team. That’s why we are playing well especially now in the last weeks of the season.
“[The strength of the league is] one of the reasons why I wanted to play here. It’s a tight competition with no weak teams. Clubs at the bottom of the table compete at the same level with the leaders.
“The Premier League is a tough competition. If you lose a game, the team below you in the table will get closer. We are aware of the difficulties, but we are on the right path.”
Gabriel will be hoping to feature when Arsenal take on Burnley at Turf Moor in their next Premier League game on Saturday evening.
The Gunners moved up to second place in the Premier League table thanks to their 4-1 win over Liverpool at Emirates Stadium on Saturday.
