Manchester City’s Jesus provides update on injury blow

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has provided an update on Instagram about the progress of his recovery from a foot injury.

The 19-year-old lasted just 14 minutes on the pitch before fracturing a metatarsal in City’s 2-0 victory over Bournemouth last Monday.

It has been a disappointing setback in an otherwise impressive start to life as a City player.

Jesus, who joined the club in January after agreeing a £27m move from Palmeiras last summer, scored three goals and provided one assist in four Premier League appearances.

The Brazilian’s form impressed manager Pep Guardiola so much that Jesus was preferred to Sergio Aguero in the starting lineup.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the teenager had surgery at the Quironsalud hospital in Barcelona last week and the operation was overseen by Dr Ramon Cugat.

Despite the blow to his season, Jesus is looking at the positives as he posted an Instagram picture of himself leaving the hospital.

He captioned it with the message: “Now just recover.”

Agora é só recuperar ???? #alômãe???? #mancity #brasileirosnomundo
