Arsenal star Gabriel Jesus rips into Yerry Mina for "talking s***" in friendly

New Arsenal forward Gabriel Jesus blasted Everton defender Yerry Mina for "talking s***" during a not so friendly pre-season game.

The South American pair clashed as the Gunners saw off the Toffees in Baltimore on Sunday. The duo confronted each other at one stage during the match, with Mina, 27, angrily gesturing towards the Brazilian ace.

Jesus, who scored a superb goal in the 2-0 win at the weekend, didn't hold back when asked about the Everton star – whom he played with at Palmeiras in 2016. Opening up about their battle to TNT Sports, he said: "You know what, I have played with Mina before in Palmeiras. We were so close to each other.

"Then, after, I don’t know why he started to attack me to do something like this [pointing] on my chest and then talking s***. I don’t know why.

"I don’t know the reason for him to do this. I am not a kid any more and I [went] straight to him as well. After we [carried] on the game and that’s all."

Jesus has taken no time to adjust to his new surroundings following his £45million move from Manchester City. The 25-year-old scored twice on debut against Nurnberg before taking his tally to three against Everton.

He was unable to get on the scoresheet as the Gunners defeated Orlando City on Wednesday night, with Eddie Nketiah, Reiss Nelson and Gabriel Martinelli doing the damage for the Premier League side.

Nevertheless, Jesus is targeting big things with Arsenal, having already declared his ambition to win the title with the club in the next five years.

He added: "I always like projects in my life, I like to do things not only thinking about today, but thinking about the long term. I came here not to stay one or two seasons, but to stay five. So that’s my thought.

"That's why I chose to come to Arsenal, a very big club in England, where they have a very beautiful history, and who unfortunately is dormant a little bit.

"Coming to a club that haven’t won a league for a long time and that has been improving every year. I have this challenge of winning."
