Manchester City received a huge boost as Gabriel Jesus marks his return. Jesus posted a video on Instagram captioned, “Falta pouco” – meaning “Not much longer to go.”
The 19-year-old broke a metatarsal bone in his foot during the 2-0 win at Bournemouth last month. Boss Pep Guardiola feared Jesus would miss the rest of the season after this incident.
He made his Etihad career, scoring three goals in five games following his £ 27million January arrival from Palmeiras.
The video shows Brazil international confidently wading from one end of a swimming pool to another. The teenager’s recovery has gone far faster than expected.
He could return to action this month as Manchester City will play against Chelsea.
