Gabriel Jesus Relishing Aguero Link Up
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus is relishing linking up with clubmate Sergio Aguero again. The two have been in direct competition for the centre forward spot, but started upfront together in Sunday’s 2-0 win at Brighton.
The 20-year old thinks he can benefit from both playing with and competing with the Argentine in City colours, telling the Daily Mail, “Sergio Aguero is a high-quality player. I'm a big fan of his, both of his football and his humility.
“But ultimately it's the manager's decision. If he wants us to play together we can, as we have already shown. But if he wants me to play up front alone, it's his decision.
“I just hope that any competition between us benefits the team, that it inspires both of us to score plenty of goals for City and leads to the club winning lots of matches and trophies.”
Aguero scored the first and Jesus forced Brighton defender Lewis Dunk into an own goal for City’s second, as they ran out comfortable 2-0 winners at the AMEX Stadium on Sunday.
