Yaya Toure urges calm over Gabriel Jesus
Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure has urged calm over the ascent of Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus. The 19 year old has enjoyed a fantastic start to life at City, with 3 goals and 2 assists in his first three games, including a stoppage time winner against Swansea on Sunday.
The progress of Jesus has impressed Yaya Toure, but the Ivorian has called for calm so that the teenager can continue to progress at his own rate, “He is a very good player. He's very quick, sharp and clever," Toure told the club's official website.
“What we want to do is just continue to keep going and at the end of the season we can talk about him. We have to keep focused because we have important games coming up and we have to be ready for that as well.”
Toure believes that Gabriel can form part of an exciting conveyor belt of young talent emerging in the City squad, “We need to have young players because City are always a team who wants to win the league," he added.
"The mentality of the club is to try to get new players in and try to do as best as possible. When you see [Kevin] De Bruyne, [David] Silva, Jesus, Sane, and Raheem playing well, you realise we have a great squad with some young players.”
