Man-City Star Gabriel Jesus Out For Three Months

Published

on

Brazilian sensation Gabriel Jesus, who plays for English Premier League (EPL) big spenders Manchester City, could possibly be out for the rest of the season after he got injured in the last league game he played for the Citizens.

Former Palmeiras striker played only 15 minutes of the English Premier League (EPL) week 25 clash between his Manchester City side and hosts Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium before limping off and was subsequently replaced by want-away Argentine star Sergio Aguero with Pep Guardiola and his players running out 2-0 winners courtesy goals from Raheem Sterling and an own goal from Bournemouth defender Tyrone Mings.

The crucial win was enough to lift Manchester City (52 points) above title rivals Liverpool (49points), Arsenal (50 points) and Tottenham Hotspurs (50 points) from 5th to 2nd (three places)on the log thus closing the gap on league leaders Chelsea to eight points with 13 games still to play in the league this season.

Speaking earlier at his post-match press conference on Monday night concerning the injury that caused his in-form player to leave the field of play in the first half of Monday’s encounter on the South Coast.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola was quite hopeful and optimistic about the injury to the 19-year old adding that he hopes the Brazilian international can team up with the 2-time English Premier League (EPL) champions very soon.

However, it seems the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager didn’t get his wish after a journalist with popular Sports outlet ESPN, Joao Castelo-Branco, confirmed on Tuesday afternoon via his Twitter handle that Jesus suffered a broken metatarsal and could be out for around three months.

The well-known journalist also revealed that the information concerning the player was gotten from former Brazilian international winger Denilson who spoke to the brother of Gabriel Jesus.

The new development will come as a big blow to the player (Gabriel Jesus), his club (Manchester City), and his country (Brazil) having made a very good start to his football career in England under the tutelage of Spanish manager Pep Guardiola culminating in 3 goals from 5 appearances since his princely move from the Brazilian league. His sensational form with his new club relegated fans favourite Sergio Aguero to the bench with the former Atletico Madrid star currently ranked as one of the best strikers in world football and has been linked with a move away from the club with teams like Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and much more.

Before he announced himself to the world at Manchester City, Gabriel Jesus, 19, had made his mark in the colours of both former club Palmeiras and the Brazilian national team.

He was instrumental in Palmeira’s first league title in 22 years last year and also won the 2016 Rio Olympics Football even for Brazil, they’re first ever titled in front of their fans.
