​Man City striker Jesus: I'm getting back to my best

Published on: 17 May 2018

Manchester City attacker Gabriel Jesus says that he is now close to his best form.

Jesus endured a stop-start season, where he suffered a serious ankle injury midway through. But he is now back among the goals as the Premier League season drew to a close.

And Jesus believes that he is ready for the World Cup.

"I'm returning to my best football," he told ESPN Brazil.

"But I've had much better games."

"In my case, I don't think the rest [through early season injury] will be a problem. I practice very hard, I take care of myself and I'm young.

"I always want to run, I always want to play. Of course I will go there a little less worn out.

"You look at it and you don't believe it because you used to collect the stickers of so many players and, today, yours is there," he said. "You get your own and you see everyone talking about it, you see everyone wanting to get your sticker.

"This is crazy. It makes me so happy. Sometimes I can't even believe it. It is simply the biggest tournament in the world of football, the most desired by every player in every country. Before, you had an idea. Now you really know what it's like."
