Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has ravished praises on former striker Gabriel Jesus
Pep Guardiola has praised Arsenal striker Gabriel Jesus, saying that he was a “delight” to work with. Arsenal brought Jesus from Manchester City to the Emirates in the summer transfer window. The departure of Jesus was due to the arrival of Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez. However, City’s loss is Arsenal’s gain. Arsenal got a world-class striker in his prime playing for them this season, which saw them go unbeaten in 4 consecutive matches in the League.
Gabriel Jesus featured in 236 games for the club during his time at City. He scored an impressive 95 goals for the club during his time there. Jesus won the Premier League four times with City since his arrival to City. Jesus also won the FA cup once with City along with two community shields with Man City. However, now Jesus has signed a long-term contract with Arsenal. He is off to a fine start for Arsenal, featuring in all seven games that Arsenal have played so far this season. Jesus has also scored three goals and has assisted another three goals for Arsenal.
Guardiola has showered praise on Jesus. The Manchester City manager said that they had an incredible striker in Jesus. Moreover, Guardiola added, that he was delighted to play with Jesus during his time at Manchester City
“We had an incredible striker with Gabriel,”
“I was delighted with Gabriel, I love this guy as he knows.”
Guardiola also stated that he was nonchalant about City signing Haaland in the transfer window as they had a brilliant striker in Gabriel Jesus.
Txiki [Begiristain] talked to me and it was a two-second conversation: ‘Okay, fine, what would you say? We had an incredible striker in Gabriel Jesus. But we had the chance to bring [Erling] here so why not?”
