Neymar Heaps Praise on Gabriel Jesus
Brazil star Neymar Junior has highlighted Gabriel Jesus as his favourite young attacking talent in football. The pair have struck up a good relationship at international level and won Olympic gold together for Brazil last August.
When asked by Goal.com who his favourite emerging attacking talents are, the Brazilian answered, “Of the new generation, I like (Antoine) Griezmann very much, but I have a great affection for Gabriel Jesus.
"I love him for how he plays and because we play together in the Selecao and we did at the Rio Olympic Games. Gabriel Jesus has entered the main Seleção very well, he is a boy with a lot of potential."
Jesus has returned to training for Manchester City, whom he joined from Palmeiras in January, after breaking his foot in January. Jesus had made a flying start to life at City and expects to return to first team duty in the coming games.
