The road to recovery continues for Gabriel Jesus and recent snaps of him on Instagram have shown that he is back in his homeland of Brazil. But why?
Today we have an answer, with Globo Esporte revealing that the 19-year-old has returned to his former club Palmeiras for treatment on his foot.
With the full approval of Manchester City, Gabriel Jesus is spending a few days at his former side to undergo physiotherapy with Jomar Ottoni, a specialist he is familiar with from his time at the São Paulo-based club.
Last week, the Premier League club sent representatives to look at the facilities of the Brazilian team. They liked what they saw and and endorsed the treatment on Gabriel Jesus by Ottoni.
In the last few days, City’s Samba sensation has met up with former teammates and attended Palmeiras’ 2-2 draw with Audax.
As soon as he finishes his treatment at Palmeiras, Gabriel Jesus will return to Europe and finish his recovery ahead of a return to action with Manchester City.
