Pep Praises ‘Incredible’ Gabriel Jesus
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola heaped praise on ‘incredible’ striker Gabriel Jesus after his role in City’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday evening.
Jesus opened the scoring with a diving header after being rewarded with a rare Premier League start ahead of Sergio Aguero upfront.
“Gabriel was always good from the beginning. Unfortunately, he had 2 tough injuries and after the World Cup, it was not easy for him,” the City boss explained.
“He's a strong number 9 of Brazil. The Club bought an incredible young player for an incredible price – one of the best signings.
“He’s good. He fights with Sergio Aguero for one position. I’ve said many times: to compete with Sergio is the most difficult thing.
“Sergio is incredible – a legend; outrageously amazing. Sometimes, I need Sergio for many things; sometimes, I need Gabriel. That’s all.”
