Gabriel Jesus is set for his first full season at Manchester City and he has been speaking about it.
Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus is about to begin his first full season at the club, after arriving at the Etihad in January following a £27million move from Palmeiras from his native Brazil.
The 20-year old was signed last summer but only joined in January and despite an injury setback, he had an impressive start to his career in England.
Jesus has only played 12 hours of football for City due to a broken foot suffered on his fifth appearance at Bournemouth. But the impact he made in that time was undeniable. Already he has seven Premier League goals to his name and in Manchester some City supporters are already calling him the 'King'.

“I don't really know,” he told the Daily Mail. “How can I say? But I'm really happy to hear the nice things. Now it's up to me to respond on the field, to train well every day and give myself the best possible preparation to live up to these expectations.
“I am very glad that the season is here. I have been waiting. I like the holidays but I prefer playing football so I'm looking forward to the work ahead of us.
“Yeah the pressure will be there, but all the big teams have to fight for silverware, not just us. I know that nowadays City is a club that has to win trophies. We didn't manage it last season, so this season everyone has to be focused on putting that right”
