Gabriel Jesus Expected Adaption to the Premier League to be Harder
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus admits that he expected to find adapting to life in the Premier League a little harder. The 19-year old has scored 7 goals in 11 appearances since joining from Palmeiras in January.
The Brazilian admitted to ESPN Brasil that he expected a much tougher induction to life in the UK, “I thought it would be harder. It hasn't been easy, for sure, I changed my life completely, but I'll never complain about it. I'm grateful for being here, realising a dream, playing in Europe.
“When I left Palmeiras, it was sad, but happy as well, with a title. Everybody is helping me here, [Brazilian teammates] Fernandinho, Fernando, but the club as well. They help my family, my friends that are here with me," he added.
"I'm missing my mum a little, she is in Brazil with my brothers and nephews. But, when she is happy, I am too. This week we will meet and end this feeling.”
