Gabriel Jesus believes that he played one of the best footballs of his career shortly before the coronavirus pandemic closed the game. Manchester City forward has been challenging club legend Sergio Aguero in a systematic starting place since he moved to Manchester City from Palmeiras three years ago. Gabriel was an unexpected start ahead of Aguero in the confrontation between the Champions League and Real Madrid and scored the equalizer in a 2-1 victory, as the City brought perhaps their best result in the history of the competition. Good minutes on the field, I started in some crucial matches, for example, against Real Madrid in the Champions League. “This helps any player to play better, play more, be happy. I think I had one of the best moments for Man City before the break.
I’m happy again
“Head coach Pep Guardiola usually does this; sometimes I play cup games and ‘Kun’ the Premier League or the opposite. Of course, I was happy, and every player wants to play in a match of this magnitude, against Real Madrid at Bernabeu. I am glad that everything went well, I helped the team, and we managed to win. “Jesus admitted that in the past, he was hard on himself, in particular, when he experienced a goalscoring drought. After moving to England as a youngster, he now believes that he can do better to cope with more difficult times in his career. “It is a process of maturation, evolution as a person and as a player,” said the Brazilian. “I went through a challenging period in my short career. But I managed to return to what I liked most, be happy again.
Gabriel likes to fit into what Pep requires from him
“A close family and friends helped me a lot at that time. So then I began to live a beneficial sequence that lasts until today”. Pep went for an adventurous system to Madrid, starting without a central striker. With Jesus playing primarily in the left position and cutting inward when City was on the attack. The system worked well, and Jesus says he loves to fit into what City Boss requires. With Palmeiras, I was like that, and I feel perfect and comfortable,” he added. “Of course, I also play as a guideline in the attack, More tucked within the area. Without any problems and I’m also used to it. But my position has always acted from the side.”
