‘I’m Getting Back To My Best’ Says Gabriel Jesus
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus says his best form is returning just in time for this summer’s World Cup. The Brazilian missed 10 weeks with a knee injury during the winter.
Having returned in March, the 20-year old insists he is just getting back to top form, following his stoppage time winner against Southampton on Sunday.
“I am very self-critical and always will be. I think this makes me want to improve, always," he told ESPN.
"But just because I'm self-critical and say what I thought of my performance in a game, it doesn't mean I will bring myself down, ever.
“This is a point that just makes me improve. If I see that I didn't do well, I am going to want to get better, always. This only helps me out."
The former Palmeiras forward says his return could be timed just right for his first World Cup in June, “It depends. I, particularly, in my case, I don't think it would be a problem, because I practice very hard, I take care of myself and I'm young.
"So I always want to run, I always want to play. But, of course, I will get there a little less worn out."
