Guardiola Thankful For Gabriel Jesus’ Family Effect
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said that Gabriel Jesus’ family moving to England has been so important for the player, who kickstarted his season with 2 goals in the 3-1 win over Everton on Saturday.
Jesus had struggled for form this campaign, having only scored 1 Premier League goal prior to Saturday. After bagging a brace against Everton, Pep was quick to play up the role of his family’s arrival in Manchester.
“I don't think he's got a girlfriend, so to have his family here is so important and I think it's going to help him,” Guardiola said. “His family will be so important to him. The effort Gabriel put in — he always does that.
Guardiola was also happy to hear the player conduct a post match interview in English for the first time. “But what I also like is it's the first I listened to him in the media speaking English. That's cool.
“I insist on them having to learn English because sometimes I have the feeling he maybe doesn't understand me. So it's important to have that feeling that he's speaking English much better.”
