Despite picking up an injury earlier in the year that kept him sidelined for a couple of months and not being able to bring silverware to the club this season, it’s been a promising start for Gabriel Jesus in the Premier League. In only 10 appearances for Manchester City in the competition, the Brazilian striker has managed to score 7 goals and give 4 assists. A fantastic contribution for a 20-year old who just crossed the Atlantic. His movement, his hunger and his ability with the ball make him a very exciting prospect and one to follow next season next to other young talent in the team like Leroy Sané, Raheem Sterling or Kevin De Bruyne.
Gabriel Jesus admitted City’s failure to secure silverware this season was disappointing but insisted the Manchester club will return “better and stronger” in August. “We are a little bit disappointed we couldn’t fight for the trophy at the end, we are really looking forward to next season” he said.
“We achieved qualification for the Champions League, which is a massive milestone, this team is still growing and changing and hopefully next season we will be stronger, better and be able to win trophies.”
