Manchester City may be walking away with the Premier League trophy and in contention for a record quadruple this season, but manager Pep Guardiola will take nothing for granted as he aims to go down in the history books at The Etihad Stadium.
Citizens fans here in The Transfer Tavern are in euphoric mood, delighted with the progression of their club under the Spaniard, and the dominance they have exerted over fierce city rivals, Manchester United. Our landlord caught up with fans from the north west around the jukebox to the sound of Oasis blaring in the background, with news emerging during the chat that crocked striker Gabriel Jesus is recovering well following an MCL injury picked up in the draw at Crystal Palace.
The Daily Mail reported that the player had shared footage of himself on a rowing machine, posted on his Instagram page, in the gym as he steps up his return, but images revealed that the player’s injured leg remained firmly planted on the ground during the exercise.
Landlord’s Verdict: Gabriel Jesus is a quality player who is beginning to show all the signs of becoming a great of the game, and will hope that this setback will not plague him for too long. The 20-year-old is likely to be selected for Brazil’s World Cup squad should he recover in time, and will be keen to get back into action as soon as possible to help his side realise their quadruple dream.
Jesus is a popular player in the game given his rise from the Brazilian favelas to Premier League stardom, and fans across the league will surely wish the player well in his recovery from injury.
City fans, let us know what you think of this news!
