Gabriel Jesus’ good start in the Premier League has impressed even the most confident after his move to Manchester City. With an assist and one goal last night, the player was man of the match against West Ham and showed he’s the real deal.
His form is receiving big coverage in Brazil. All the sports shows have stories about the 19-year-old today, and ESPN, who have the Premier League rights, keep pushing it most.
Reporter Natali Gedra spoke to Manchester City players after the game. They all hailed the youngster’s performance, but it was pointed out he needs to learn English.
“We have a fantastic player,” Yaya Touré told ESPN Brasil. “Today he did very, very well. A fantastic performance, to be honest. He’s a good guy, you know what I mean? The most important thing is to try to learn English now!(laughs)”
Fernandinho praised Jesus too: “He’s arrived very well. Excited. He came very willing to work and demonstrate service. And most of all I think the most important thing is the will that he demonstrated in learning.
“And learning English, and the Spanish that we listen to a lot in the dressing room, I’m sure it will make a difference for him here at the club.”
ESPN’s greatest work last night was to pay attention at Gabriel Jesus’ chat with Fernandinho after the game. The new signing isn’t really used to all the cameras on the pitch, so he was completely honest to his teammate.
“Bro… I died, man. I’m rotten, farted… there now, with Delph.”
After all those efforts, we understand you, Gabriel. It’s time for us to accept that Jesus farts too.
