‘I’m more than just a goalscorer’ insists Gabriel Jesus
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus insists he is more than just a goalscorer, following his first strike for City in the 4-0 away win at West Ham United last night. The Brazilian also has 2 assists in his 3 appearances in a City shirt thus far.
Jesus began his career as a winger, before moving into a central striking role last year and he says that he is just as happy providing goals as he is scoring them, “I’m used to scoring many goals but I also like to assist and to help the team in other ways and I’m happy for it.
“If I’m in the starting line-up it’s great and if not I’m going to try to help the team any way I can. I came here to help, the adaptation process is going great, my teammates are really helping me very much, the club is really helping me so I can stay focused on football which I really like and it’s great.”
City attacker Kevin de Bruyne, who also scored in the 4-0 rout, insists that Jesus and German teenager Leroy Sané are ready to help with City’s title bid, “They [Jesus and Sane] are very sharp,” he said.
“I just thought at half time that these guys are so quick and it’s even almost impossible for us to follow them in midfield but obviously they bring great energy, they’re very young so they have a bright future and luckily they are with us.”
