Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has once again spoken to ESPN Brasil, this time in a relaxed chat during a morning show.
Since Nicolas Otamendi revaled some of Pep Guardiola’s demands with the players, interest has grown, and that’s something the Brazilian was asked about.
He first spoke a bit about the skills he’s lacking, which is what the Manchester City boss has been asking him to train for more: “There’s always something to improve. I’m working very hard to improve my headers, I’ve improved over last year.
“Today I target my headers better, but there is still a lot left for me to finish better with my head. I’m working on it,” Jesus told ESPN (via Torcedores).
Then he was also asked about his efforts to learn English, something also mentioned by Otamendi: “It’s something he [Guardiola] always demands. It will be ten months since I’ve been here, but in those ten months I had some unforeseen events.
“I hurt myself, I had no head to do it. Soon after I returned, when I started to study, I had vacations. When I got back here I did not have time, but now I’m doing it. We have to do it because he’s always on it.”
On Friday, Gabriel Jesus has once again been called up for the Brazilian national team squad. This time, the Manchester City striker will be representing the country in friendlies against Japan and England next month.
Despite making his international debut in September last year, Jesus was quick to impress Tite and has a place guaranteed at the World Cup. He has a record of seven goals and five assists in 11 appearances for Brazil so far.
