Manchester city striker Gabriel Jesus told about how at age 13 he threatened to break his legs, but his defense became his teammates.
“When I was 13 years old, I began to play football with grown men. In Brazil this is reminiscent of street basketball – a lot of tough joints and dirty beats. We played against the strongest team in the League. All asked one question: “Who is this child?”.
I managed to beat the defender and score a goal. He said he will break my legs. I again received the ball and sent it into the net. We played a draw (2:2) and won on penalties. This player again threatened to break his legs, already in the Parking lot. At the time I was defended by teammates.
The story is not over. I came for Christmas to see her family. Went to the Bank and met the guy. He said, “Babe, remember me? I wanted to break your legs. I wasn’t kidding, brother. I really wanted to do it. And now you play for my favorite team. I love you, brother.”
I couldn’t believe what he heard. We laughed together on this and make a joint photo for memory”, – quotes the words Jesus Goal.
Earlier it was reported that Manchester city plans to increase the salaries of the young footballer Gabriel Jesus.
