Gabriel Jesus ‘adapting quickly’ to new life in Manchester
Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus has paid tribute to his colleagues at Manchester City for helping him to settle in England. The 19-year old arrived in Manchester 3 weeks ago and made his debut from the bench in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Manchester City.
The ex Palmeiras man told City’s official website, “My colleagues and the whole club welcomed me very well. It plays a key part in my work. With everybody's support I am adapting quickly to my new life.
“I could see the difference from the Brazilian football even playing few minutes, but I have to adapt as quick as possible. I have been here for three weeks and I came here to help and be helped as well.
The youngster thought that he had nabbed a winning goal on his debut, but his second half effort was ruled out for offside, “I thought I was onside,” he said. “But I quickly realized that the fans were not celebrating afterwards.
“That is why I kicked the corner flag angry with myself for being one step ahead. So I did not complain. We have to work hard, we still have chances and there are many matches to come.”
