Gabriel Jesus Sought Fernandinho Counsel To End Goal Drought
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus paid tribute to teammate and compatriot Fernandinho after breaking his 10 game scoreless streak.
The Brazilian bagged two goals in the 4-1 win over Burnley on Tuesday, his first strikes for 10 matches. He revealed after the game that Fernandinho’s advice had helped him through a dry spell.
“When I'm not happy, you can tell. Fernandinho perceived it and came to talk to me. I had the chat with him and it helped me a lot.
“He has always been very important since I arrived at the club. With his experience throughout his career, he is giving me advice.
“The day before the game, we had a nice chat. He always looks after all of us, especially the young ones.
"As a countryman, he came to talk to me and tell me to remain calm. I was calm, more confident and I managed to score two goals. That was very important to me.”
