City playing ‘Brazilian football’ under Pep

Manchester City starlet Gabriel Jesus has been a brilliant since his arrival at the club, scoring 13 league goals in 17 games. This season alone he has managed six goals in seven Premier League appearances, making him one of the most feared strikers in the country.

He is arguably one of if not the best under 21 players in the world, and at times has even kept Sergio Aguero out of the City team.

In an interview with Sky Sports’ Soccer Saturday, the youngster has thanked Pep Guardiola for playing ‘Brazilian style’ football, which could well be bringing the best out of the 20-year-old, and elaborated on how well he is settling into life in Manchester.

“Yes, it was almost like [Brazilian football],” said Jesus. “In Brazil when we win with so many goals the players tend to start playing with more style and being playful.”

“They start jumping around and it did feel more or less like this. It felt like a very beautiful way of winning that game.”

“As players we enjoyed it a lot and that’s how we felt inside the pitch.”

“Obviously I am enjoying playing here a lot.”

“I am a very calm and tranquil person but I do miss some things the city hasn’t got compared to where I used to live in Brazil.”

“But I am very happy and getting to know the city better and better.”

“Pep Guardiola is a very ambitious manager, that’s a reason why he has been able to win all the trophies he has won in his career.”

“I am very happy to get the chance to be trained by him and I am very proud to be able to grow under his management. I hope we will carry on together and we will be able to improve even more.”
