Manchester City confirm that Gabriel Jesus has suffered a fractured metatarsal

Manchester City Football Club have confirmed earlier reports that Gabriel Jesus suffered a fractured metatarsal against Bournemouth. In a statement on the official website, the club said:

“Manchester City can confirm Gabriel Jesus suffered a fractured metatarsal during the 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Monday night.

The 19-year-old was withdrawn from action after 15 minutes of the game and assessed by the Club’s medical staff.

He will undergo further examinations in the coming days to establish the extent of his layoff.

Jesus has scored three goals in five appearances for City since his move from Palmeiras was rubber-stamped in January and has received widespread praise for the way he has adapted to English football.

We wish Gabriel a speedy recovery and we will keep you updated on his progress via the Club’s official channels in the coming days.”
