Gabriel Jesus ‘A Big Fan’ of Roberto Firmino: But Not When He Plays Against City!
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus says he is a big admirer of fellow Brazil international forward Roberto Firmino and sees plenty of similarities between the two players.
Jesus and Firmino are fighting for the centre-forward spot with the Seleção ahead of the Copa América in June.
“We are alike in the game,” Jesus said, “When we are not on the ball we leave the area and we bother people.
“We are alike in many things. I am a very big fan of Firmino, he helps his club team and the national team a lot.
“He is a really good guy too, but I just don’t cheer him when he plays against Manchester City! I believe in him, I am a fan of him.
“I hope he makes a wonderful story in the Premier League at Liverpool and here in the national team too.”
