Gabriel Jesus Opens Up On Dip In Form
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has admitted that he is going through a difficult phase in terms of his form. The Brazilian only has a solitary Premier League goal this season on the back of a World Cup campaign where he failed to find the net.
Jesus told Esporte Interativo, “It’s the footballer’s life. I think everyone’s life. It has good phases, bad phases. There are phases that you play very well and you do not score much. There are stages that you only shin the ball and score a goal.
“It’s a player’s life. Players live like this. We have to keep the psychological side very strong. I think unfortunately I could not do that. Now, as I said, I go back, talking to my family, to my mother, to the people who are with me.
“I think this is helping me a lot to regain my confidence, to resume my football. And I think things are going to get better from now on. Like I said, today was a game that I felt really good, I’m very happy for my game. Regardless of scoring or not.
“I know I’m an attacker, a forward, and I live on goals. However, sometimes the team wins,you helped a lot with the ball and without the ball, you did not score the goal. So I’m happy. Of course, like I said, this season is not like last season or when I got here.
“I think that’s why the demand is a little higher. But I’m very calm about it, I hope to continue helping my team, keep working hard, like I’ve been working, I’ve always worked, and with the happiness that I have.”
