Gabriel Jesus was seen at the Emirates after full-time, celebrating with the Arsenal team on the pitch as they collected all three points in a 3-2 thriller against Manchester United.

We already knew he was off his crutches and he’d posted some images of him working with a ball in the gym.

Now, when asked when we could expect him back, he replied, “four or five weeks,” as you can see in the video below:

Jesus suffered medial ligament damage that required surgery during his World Cup adventure in Qatar.

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is a ligament located on the inner side of the knee joint. Damage to the MCL can occur from a direct impact or a twisting motion on the knee, and symptoms can include pain, swelling, and difficulty moving the knee.

Treatment options for MCL damage include rest, ice, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery.

Recovery time can vary depending on the severity of the injury and the treatment received, with Jesus’s injury falling at the more serious end of the scale.
