Gabriel has said that he made the right decision in joining Arsenal, and has hailed the quality of the Premier League.

The Brazilian defender joined the Gunners from Villarreal for £11m back in January, and has since made five appearances for the club.

"Every player knows his quality, we have top-quality training facilities and an excellent team," the defender told "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."
