To clear out any confusion after Pep Guardiola’s interview, the Manchester City frontman talked about his injury situation.
Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus revealed his latest injury incident saying it was bad enough that he “couldn’t walk properly”.
The Brazil international netted in the opening game of the season for City which was against Wolves. And unfortunately, he suffered from a thigh injury during the game and could not play until November. We all witnessed City struggle in the absence of their two star strikers, Sergio Aguero and Jesus. Moreover, the 23-year-old has managed to score in all the three fixtures he has participated in. This is including his latest admirable goal in a 1-1 against Liverpool in the Premier League last Sunday.
Ready, set and fit.
Jesus is however fit to record minutes on the field for his national side in the absence of iconic Neymar. But a few weeks ago, the City medical officials were concerned about his extremely painful injury problem.
“It was a very complicated injury,” he said at a press conference ahead of Brazil’s game with Venezuela. “I was able to finish the game fine but when the blood cooled, I couldn’t walk properly.
“It was a kick and then a sprint that I ended up feeling something, but I continued. The next day the doctor asked how I was able to finish the game. It was a long recovery because it’s a part of the body that bleeds a lot.
“Not being able to play bothered me and I was very upset by the injury.”
City head coach Pep Guardiola mentioned in his interview that the Brazilian could be benched for months. Though, now the striker reassured that he will be back to playing normal football.
Jesus added: “After the Guardiola interview, there was some confusion, but everything was resolved. I came back and I’m fine.”
