Gabriel Jesus’ fellow countryman Roberto Carlos has joined the list of legends that have heaped praised upon the 19-year-old as he starts his Manchester City career.
Roberto Carlos is somewhat a legend for both Real Madrid and the Brazilian national team and as a former defender, he knows a good attacker when he sees one.
However, the former Real Madrid defender has asked the media and football fans to not expect too much too soon, the young attacker will have plenty of time to show what he is made of.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Roberto Carlos said:
“Gabriel will be very important for Manchester City but he needs time to adapt. I would ask that people don’t put too much pressure on him too soon.”
“He showed what he can do in the last 15 minutes of the game against Tottenham.
“He showed his fantastic speed and he scored the goal that was ruled out for offside.”
