No brace, no crutches… Gabriel Jesus edges closer to Manchester City return

After a trip to New York and embarrassing İlkay Gündoğan at the basketball, crocked Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus is enjoying some downtime in his native Brazil.

The 19-year-old, who has been out of action since sustaining a metatarsal injury against Bournemouth in February, recently told SportTV when discussing his comeback date, “I don’t know, I have no return prediction. But I hope I can still play some games this season.”

The signs are promising that Jesus will feature again for the Blues this season, as he is now both out of his supportive brace and off crutches as his latest Instagram posts show.

In his latest, taken in São Paulo, the forward is standing on an apartment balcony and seems eager to show off his progress. There is still a way to go, including further therapy and several stages of training, but hopefully the Seleção golden boy will be back in action soon.
