Gabriel Jesus is very happy to give up personal records and awards for European success with Manchester City.
Speaking to Champions Journal, he said: “Each player writes his own history and I’m writing mine”.
“I’m obviously happy to have set that record but I hope younger players can break it, as this would mean a good thing for Brazil and Brazilians”.
“I demand a lot from myself, as I’m a striker. I’ve long made a resolution that I must score plenty of goals”.
“I know I have to improve on a daily basis, seeking perfection even if it’s unreachable. I must seek it by working hard every day to improve bit by bit”.
“I want to always be playing and doing things, and enjoying what I love the most”.
“I’ve gone through both happy and unhappy spells in my career, so I’ve been maturing more and more. I have to mature further still.”
“The truth is that to win the Champions League you need an extra something – and this team has been maturing,”
“To be able to play today, to make my mark in this competition, makes me very happy.”
Gabriel Jesus broke his compatriot Neymar’s record in 2019 when he became the fastest Brazilian to score 10 goals in Champions League.
He is currently at 15 goals for Man City in Europe’s most elite competition.
Gabriel Jesus would get a very good opportunity to further add to his tally when Man City take on Porto in the Champions League on Tuesday.
