Man City Confirm Iheanacho Rival Gabriel Jesus Injury

 

Manchester City have given an update on the injury to their striker Gabriel Jesus, who was taken off in the first half of Monday's Premier League win at Bournemouth.

 

"Manchester City can confirm Gabriel Jesus suffered a fractured metatarsal during the 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Monday night," the club announced on their official website on Tuesday. 

 

"The 19-year-old was withdrawn from action after 15 minutes of the game and assessed by the Club’s medical staff.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

 

The arrival of the Brazilian has seen Sergio Aguero lose his starting spot while Nigeria striker Kelechi Iheanacho was not even considered for the City bench in their last five games
