Gabriel Jesus; “My Best Is Yet To Come”
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus insists that his best form is yet to come in England. The 19 year old was on the scoresheet again on Saturday, converting a penalty in City’s 2-1 win over Leicester at the Etihad.
It was his 5th goal in his first 9 appearances for the club, but he told the Manchester City website that there is plenty more to come, “I haven’t been able to deliver and to show my real technique and what I can do.
“I have been adjusting quite well. When I reflect and analyse my performance, I am still not playing exactly with my style that I was playing at Palmeiras and with the Brazilian National Team. I still haven’t imposed and scored as many goals.
“But it’s helping me to think about my position on the pitch and understand better Pep’s style and my colleagues. I have been working hard, to fit in, the best way possible. Our team today played well and fought well too.”
Jesus admitted that Yaya Toure was the designated penalty taker, but he asked the Ivorian for the ball when the referee pointed to the spot, “It was funny,” Jesus explained. “I practice a lot. I was practicing yesterday and I even said to Fernando that I am glad I practiced it yesterday.
“I was confident. Fernandinho also helped saying to Toure that I should take it, so he called me, I got the ball and I did it. I don’t usually score goals from a penalty but I always train them and always like to take them.
“Today Yaya let me take it and I am thankful for that. I am extremely happy and even more with the three points.”
