'I was so unhappy' - Manchester City's Jesus delighted to make scoring return from injury


Gabriel Jesus Manchester City

Gabriel Jesus was thrilled to make a goalscoring return from injury as Manchester City swept aside Olympiacos 3-0 in the Champions League on Tuesday.

Jesus has been plagued by injuries- missing 39 games since joining City in 2017 -and after scoring in his first league game this season on September 22, the 23-year-old hadn't been seen since.

"It’s so good for me," Jesus told BT Sport. "When I got injured I was so unhappy. Of course every player when he gets injured is unhappy. I worked a lot to recover as quickly as possible because I wanted to be in the pitch helping my team mates. They were doing very well so I was happy to come back and score."

Jesus now has two goals in as many appearances this campaign after profiting from a wonderful Kevin De Bruyne through ball. The Belgian set up the chance for Jesus on an acute angle, with the ex-Palmeiras striker clinically lashing the shot into the net.

"It was a good ball, a good play from the team," Jesus said."Kevin gave me a good ball, I dribbled and shot. I think it was an amazing finish, hard for the keeper, so I have to improve my finishing all the time so I am getting better.

"The game like this was a difficult team, so yeah I come on. Before I was watching the game and watching the defenders play so I come ready to get one chance and I got one chance and I scored. Sometimes it is going to happen."

Jesus will now be in line for more minutes as Manchester City host Liverpool in a Premier League blockbuster on Sunday at the Etihad.
