‘He’ll Never Be A Regular Starter’ ‘Off Ya Pop Then’ ‘I Understand His Frustrations’ Fans On Twitter Debate City Ace’s Call For More Game Time

‘He’ll Never Be A Regular Starter’ ‘Off Ya Pop Then’ ‘I Understand His Frustrations’ Fans On Twitter Debate City Ace’s Call For More Game Time

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus says he is keen for more first-team opportunities after patiently waiting for his chance to be a regular starter over the past few years.

The Brazilian international has made three starts this campaign but speaking out about his playing time, the forward thinks he deserves more minutes on the pitch:

“I’m over the “I have to wait (for a chance)” phase. I’ve been here for almost three years, it’s my fourth season, and that makes me want to play more.”


“Obviously it’s very hard to compete for a place with Aguero, the biggest legend of this club, although it’s good for the team – he plays well when in the team and I do the same. I do understand Pep’s decisions and respect Sergio, his history here and what he’s doing now.”

Fans on Twitter had a mixed reaction to Jesus’s remarks, with some believing his ambition should be lauded, while others think it may be time for him to move on:

As Jesus mentions himself, the presence of Sergio Aguero in the squad makes the likelihood of increased game time unlikely. Manager Pep Guardiola has already said that he completely understands the player’s comments and it is natural for him to want to play more.

Whether Jesus’s words are an indication that he wants out of the club, you can’t be 100% sure, but it does appear his patience is beginning to wear thin.
