His first half season in Europe is over, and looking back to everything that happened the last five months, he felt he had to mention two specific people who made adjusting to life in Manchester a whole lot easier for him.
Everybody is helping me here, Fernandinho, Fernando, but the club as well. They help my family, my friends that are here with me
Gabriel Jesus told ESPN Brasil, indirectly thanking his Brazilian teammates for making things easier for him in his first steps outside their home country.
I thought it would be harder. It hasn’t been easy, for sure, I changed my life completely, but I’ll never complain about it. I’m grateful for being here, realising a dream, playing in Europe
the 20-year-old Brazilian said. He moved to Manchester City in the middle of winter having won the championship with Palmeiras, and despite getting injured and missing several games, he did manage to impress, scoring seven goals in just 11 appearances.
When I left Palmeiras, it was sad, but happy as well, with a title
the youngster admitted. As for what he misses from home, it’s not what, but who, his mother.
I’m missing my mum a little, she is in Brazil with my brothers and nephews. But, when she is happy, I am too. This week we will meet and end this feeling
