So Good It’s Scary!
Just a couple of years ago, Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus was running around Kogarah Oval in Sydney. Now he’s a global superstar...
The Manchester City team coach has just pulled up at their state-of-the-art training complex, returning after a League Cup victory at West Bromwich Albion. Given it is around 2am on a particularly soggy late-September morning, the players’ minds are more than likely set on a good night’s sleep and a well-earned lie-in. However, Pep Guardiola, unsurprisingly given his penchant for pushing the envelope, has got other ideas. Just a few hours later, the Citizens’ expensively-assembled squad is back running hard on one of the 16 outdoor pitches within the City Football Academy. This far-from-relaxed morning session is the sight that greets Four Four Two upon our arrival ahead of a meeting with one of the most exhilarating youngsters in world football. Given his gruelling previous 24 hours, Gabriel Fernando de Jesus could have been forgiven for being a little reluctant to spend his day talking shop. But he bounds over to FFT with a smile as wide as the Manchester Ship Canal – although he does confess he has other things on his mind. Very important things. “I’m dreaming of getting home to eat rice and beans,” he says, before spotting our photographer preparing a stick of candy floss for his photo shoot. If he’s tired, it certainly doesn’t show, as our snapper manoeuvres our cover star through a series of poses. “Can you scream for us, Gabriel? Could you play the drums?” The youngster is only too happy to oblige, and he even bellows a few quick lines of Queen’s We Will Rock You into the bargain. When you have come to visit Brazil’s newest bright young thing, you know you’re in for a good time. Moving halfway across the globe is rarely a straightforward process for a young man of Jesus’ age, but this Sao Paulo native has had little difficulty adapting to his new lifestyle in the north of England. After all, this is a kid who has already inspired success with club and country. In 2016 alone, he was Palmeiras’ top scorer in helping the Verdao secure their first league title in 22 years, and proved a pivotal figure in ending Brazil’s long quest to claim gold at the Olympics. Since then, Jesus has also been a standout performer for the Selecao’s senior side alongside global superstar – and best friend – Neymar. Pressure? This is a breeze! “To be completely honest, I thought it would be a lot more difficult to adapt to life in Manchester than it actually has been,” Jesus tells FFT with the kind of nonplussed shrug only a 20-year-old can deliver. “It’s been easy. I’m already settled and this has really helped me to perform on the pitch. I obviously miss many things about Brazil, but that’s just normal. I’m feeling at home here now. Manchester has become Jardim Peri to me.” That speedy assimilation is at least partly down to Jesus recreating Jardim Peri, the borough in the north of Sao Paulo where he grew up some 6,000 miles away, in the north-west est of England. The youngster brought along his two best childhood friends – Higor gor Braga and Fabio Lucio – to live with him under the same roof in Manchester. Together, the trio are living outside their hometown for the first time. While Jesus is being put through his paces by Pep at the training ground, Fabio and Higor are busy taking English classes and making sure everything’s running smoothly at their shared home. When the striker isn’t on club duties, or away with the national team, they are unlikely to be seen apart. “We’re always together in our spare time – we like playing board games and video games, or going shopping,” reveals Fabio, aka Fabinho. “Higor and I were surprised and really happy to get the invitation to move to England with Gabriel. It’s a great opportunity to live abroad.” Jesus’ older brother, Felipe, and their mother, Vera Lucia, complete the starlet’s entourage, with a Brazilian personal chef also on hand to ensure there is rice and beans on the table whenever Jesus returns home from another of those demanding training sessions under Guardiola. No wonder he looks so at home in a sky blue shirt. Born in Brazil’s biggest metropolis back in April 1997 – when City were languishing in the bottom half of what is now the Championship – Jesus has always lived and breathed football. Yet, although the clichéd image is a seductive one, it’s not entirely true to say this enthusiastic young Brazilian was always kicking a ball on the streets of his neighbourhood as a kid. He does now endeavour to go home for a kickabout with local kids whenever he gets a pause from his City duties, but it was actually in another region of Sao Paulo, Horto Florestal, that his promising career really began to take shape. When he was eight years old, Jesus entered into Pequeninos do Meio Ambiente, a tiny amateur club located inside a military prison at the northern edge of Sao Paulo. The fact that Jesus’ initial footsteps to football superstardom took place inside prison walls quickly captured the imagination of journalists following his successful move to Europe. “When the story first got out that I used to play inside a prison, people started asking me if I had been sentenced,” he chuckles. “Yes, the pitch was inside Rom Romao Gomes prison, but it was mostly used by the police and it was quite far away from the bad guys – I never felt afraid of anything there there.” “I used to get there very early in the morning – quite often I’d leave home around 5am or 6am – and sometimes it was still dark when I got out on the pitch so maybe I was afraid of that,” he admits with a rueful smirk. Pequeninos do Meio Ambiente’s ground is pleasant enough, if poorly kept. Kids run around on an uneven clay playing surface, partially hidden by leaves that have fallen from the trees of the nearby Cantareira State Park. The place is blissfully quiet, with little noise beyond the occasional chirping of birdsong. It feels more like a place of relaxation than a clink. But it’s definitely a prison, and any doubters need only look at an ominous-looking sign raised slightly above pitch level behind the ground’s one concrete stand: “No people allowed”.
Jose Francisco Mamede is one of the founders of the club – and he is still at the helm today. Back in 1995, he reached an agreement with the military police to use Romao Gomes’ pitch every Saturday morning for a community project. Ever since, the children of this humble part of town have been welcomed for coaching sessions and the chance to be a part of a successful team. It’s an unpaid position that Mamede combines with his day job running his own estate agency. But, as well as being one of the founders, he is also the club’s sporting director and the manager. His weekly task-list at Pequeninos sometimes includes picking up the children as well. More than once, Mamede squeezed “10 or 11 kids” into his sturdy 1973 Beetle. Normally Jesus was among them, either annoyed about a bad result or making light of a routine win. “Gabriel has always been very competitive and self-confident,” recalls Mamede. “He could sometimes be grumpy after a defeat. However, more often than not we used to win, and he’d come to us saying the victory was a tetinha [slang for an easy task]. Things always looked so easy for him and we started to call him ‘Tetinha’ – that’s his nickname here. He’s a special boy who’ll never forget his time with us.” In fact, ‘Tetinha’ has gone so far to show he hasn’t forgotten his roots, he literally wears his old community on his body, wherever he goes. On his right forearm, Jesus has got a tattoo that shows a small boy holding a football and looking dreamily towards Jardim Peri’s makeshift houses. He has also used his body to express his gratitude to his mother. Two of his tattoos are tributes to Vera Lucia – one a recently-finished etching of her face on his left arm (he assures us that she loves it, although also admits she found several ‘inexact’ wrinkles in her inky duplication). The other, his very first tattoo, is a written promise that she will always guide the way. By way of happy coincidence, these tributes have also helped convince mum to green-light her son’s penchant for tattoos. Vera Lucia, previously a housekeeper back in Brazil, is a single mother responsible for educating and guiding her four children. She’s still without doubt the most influential person in Jesus’ life. “My mum means more to me than just love,” he gushes, not holding back. “I’m proud of her. I’m proud of having her as a mother. I’m proud of how she has raised me and my siblings. She was the one who taught me what’s right and wrong in life. She’s everything to me. Words can’t describe what I feel for her, really.” The biggest influence on Jesus is also behind his trademark telephone goal celebration. The genesis of the idea refers to a time when all Vera Lucia craved was hearing the voice of her son over the phone. It was the only way she could be certain that little Gabriel wasn’t in trouble. Jesus’ mother would do everything to reach her pride and joy. “The celebration is a mix of my relationship with my friends and with my mum,” he explains. “When I used to leave home at around 6pm to meet my friends, I always knew at some point that my mum would call me, and if she couldn’t get hold of me, then she’d call my friends,” Jesus laughs. “Eventually, every time I received a call, no matter who was on the other end, me and my friends would all jokingly shout, ‘Hello mum.’ One of the lads then suggested that I should celebrate a goal like that, and I did it in a match for the Selecao – it’s a tribute to my mother and to my friends.” However, Vera Lucia’s input doesn’t cover just his recreational activities – she has some thoughts on Jesus’ performances on the pitch as well. Guardiola might not be aware of it, but he has a secret assistant coach. Apparently Vera Lucia doesn’t like it when her boy is caught offside too often. She’s also a critic if, when the final whistle blows, his shot-count is low. And you thought being told to tidy your bedroom was annoying. By the time Jesus had initially agreed to join Manchester City in August 2016, he had become a target for pretty much all of Europe’s top clubs. As one of the game’s most sought-after stars, he experienced pressure and media scrutiny like never before. After a sensational break-out year at Palmeiras – he finished off the 2016 Brasileirao campaign not only as a champion, but one of the top scorers – a switch to Europe seemed the logical next step. He chose the Etihad Stadium as his destination for one reason only: Pep Guardiola. And not simply because the striker thought the Catalan’s brilliant tactical mind would allow him to flourish, but also because of his personal touch. Right in the middle of the Brazilian season, on what Jesus thought was just another day, his telephone rang. This time it wasn’t his mum. “Guardiola called me up and said I would be a very important part of his project,” Jesus explains. “This obviously made me feel wanted and was a big factor in helping me pick City as my next club. There had been a lot of clubs interested in signing me at the time, but the one I felt most confident in was City.” From January 3, their chats no longer needed to be conducted over the telephone. Pep was excitedly awaiting the arrival of his bright prospect. “When I landed in Manchester, I came straight to the training ground – I didn’t even go to my hotel,” the striker says. “He wanted me there. It was 6pm and training had been in the morning, but Guardiola waited for me to arrive. At this moment, I realised he’s a different kind of manager.” It didn’t take Jesus long to make his $47 million price tag appear like chump change. For a player of his age and nationality, his impact in the Premier League has been nothing short of astonishing. It didn’t take him long to find his bearings. On his first league start for City, in February, he scored and provided an assist for Kevin De Bruyne. From then on, Jesus has continued to produce goals at an eye-catching rate – 12 in his first 15 starts for the Citizens, including one on his Champions League debut against Feyenoord in September.
Yet while City are clearly feeling the benefit of Jesus’ arrival, Palmeiras certainly seem to have been hit hard by his exit – his old team are not enjoying quite the same success as they did with their prodigy still on the books. “It’s rare to see a player with so much strength, speed and technique – you just don’t see many of them around,” Palmeiras coach Cuca tells FFT. “When I set my eyes on him at his first training session, I realised just how special he was,” adds the man who gave the starlet his professional debut. “These qualities give him an important advantage in modern football: he’s versatile and can play off either flank, as well as a striker. This boy’s a unique player.” It’s therefore no surprise Pep Guardiola fell in love with Gabriel Jesus. That kind of versatility is exactly what the City coach craves in his team, so there can be few things more exciting to the Catalan than discovering a young, multifunctional player – after all, his entire footballing ethos is built around fluid movement. And Pep isn’t the only one astounded by Jesus’ increasing physical and technical prowess. Selecao boss Tite, talking on one of Brazilian TV’s most popular football-dedicated shows, compared the forward’s strength and power to that of a horse. Even his international team-mates – who are used to rubbing shoulders with the best footballers on the planet, if they aren’t already in that category themselves – have been blown away by what the 20-year-old can do on the pitch, be that in the stadium or on the training ground. “What he does on a daily basis in training is amazing,” says full-back Danilo, one of the four Brazilians in the Blues’ squad. “His maturity and understanding of the game are rare for a kid of his age. “The great thing about him is that he’s still a long way from his peak, but he’s already one of the best strikers in the world,” adds the two-time Champions League winner with Real Madrid. Another of his compatriots at City, Fernandinho, has been playing an integral role in Jesus’ adaptation, both to the Premier League and life in England. The midfielder is a brotherly figure to his younger team-mate, particularly when it comes to navigating the city of Manchester. He has provided valuable tips for places to visit – or avoid – in the local area and also acts as the forward’s interpreter every now and then. Before Jesus moved to the UK, the pair already knew each other from their time together with the national team, so as soon as Jesus heard of City’s interest, there was one man he knew he had to call. “I talked to Fernandinho several times before signing for Manchester City,” Jesus tells FFT. “He told me that although the city was very cold, the club was sensational and would fight for big titles. That was all I needed to hear. Playing in the Premier League, which is the best league in the world, was my dream.” Ask Fernandinho to list some of his compatriot’s best qualities and he won’t name a technical skill, rather the type of personality traits which mark people out for success in any walk of life, like persistence and the hunger for constant improvement. “The boy has got his feet on the ground,” Fernandinho, who joined City from Shakhtar Donetsk in 2013, says of his new club colleague. “I have been impressed by his will to work, and by the way he pays attention to Guardiola’s instructions and advice. You can tell that he loves his job. If he doesn’t get something quite right, he’ll go and try it again and again until he does. Gabriel has got a brilliant future ahead of him, and it’s just a matter of time before he fulfils all of his dreams.” One story from Jesus’ time with Palmeiras corroborates Fernandinho’s testimony. At the time, Gabriel had already agreed to join Manchester City and was heading off to Manaus with the national team for a World Cup qualifier. The location of England’s 2014 World Cup defeat by Italy, Manaus is in northern Brazil, around 2,500 miles from Palmeiras’ home city of Sao Paulo. “Gabriel played for Brazil on the Tuesday night, but he knew we had an important local derby against Sao Paulo on Thursday,” recalls Cuca. “So he asked the board for a private jet to pick him up in
“YOU CA N TELL HE LOVES HIS JOB. JESUS HAS A BRILLIANT FUTURE AHEAD–IT’ S A MATTER OF TIME BEFORE HE FULFILS ALL HIS DREAMS”
Manaus, so he would be back in time for the derby. He didn’t need to do that, but he was so desperate to play and help his team-mates.” Having played the first 86 minutes of a crucial 2-1 victory over Colombia, Jesus dashed home quickly enough to take a place on the substitutes’ bench for the league clash at Arena Palmeiras. He entered the fray in the 54th minute with his team trailing 1-0. By full-time, Palmeiras had fought back to beat their city rivals 2-1. But despite the smiling and laughing, it hasn’t all been plain sailing for Jesus since arriving in the Premier League at the beginning of the year. He scored three goals in his headline-grabbing first five games for City, including a 92nd-minute winner against Swansea – an impact strong enough to displace Sergio Aguero from the starting line-up. Then fate stopped him in a way the Premier League’s defenders had been unable to. In just the 15th minute of his sixth appearance in England, against Bournemouth, the Citizens’ new darling was forced off with a fractured metatarsal. Suddenly, after an electrifying start, Jesus was facing the prospect of a 10-week spell on the sidelines. “It was one of the most difficult periods of my life,” he admits, his shoulders slumping slightly. “It was the first major injury of my career. I have ve never been sidelined for such a long time. The last time something similar happened to me, I was 10 years old at varzea [Brazilian grassroots football]. “For or a month, I was really down. Whatever I did, I just couldn’t feel happy. All I could think about was my injury and missing the chance to be involved in those matches. . It was tough.” Despite his time off from the pitch, Jesus didn’t disappear entirely from the news – particularly at home. The attention he receives from the Brazilian media mirrors that thrust on fellow countryman Neymar in his early days with Barcelona. The biggest media outlets in his homeland understand the lure of Jesus’ name in a headline, a fact that won’t be lost on anyone who’s seen the many puns on his moniker since arriving in England. But this is something he expected. “When I decided that I wanted to be known as Gabriel Jesus, I knew there would be some jokes,” he tells FFT. “But there is no reason to hide my name. I don’t care about the jokes, as long as they are respectful. To be honest, I don’t really follow a lot of sports coverage – I just prefer to enjoy more time with my family.” Every aspect of his routine – on and off the pitch – garners significant attention from the adoring public at home. Both Brazilian website UOL and Esporte Interativo, a sports TV channel, now have correspondents based in Manchester. But it’s not just internet traffic and TV audiences the charismatic forward is generating. As a consequence of his growing popularity, he’s become a valuable commodity to major brands. In June, Jesus was announced as the new client of Octagon Brazil, the nation’s largest sports and entertainment marketing agency, who count Ronaldo among their shareholders. Two months later, he revealed his maiden personal sponsorship contract with Ambev – the biggest brewery in South America. The shy, introverted boy from Jardim Peri is suddenly soaring towards superstardom – and if his success on the pitch has not come as a huge surprise to his family, friends and former colleagues, this latest element of his being certainly has. “Gabriel has always been a quiet and reserved boy,” his mother Vera Lucia tells FFT. “Becoming a footballer has always been his only goal in life. I’m very proud he made it, and so happy that he wants me beside him.” Yet Ronaldo is far more than just a business partner to Jesus. The pair have become friends after meeting while recording shows for Brazilian TV. On one such occasion, the youngster greeted all of his fellow guests before saying hello to ‘Mr Ronaldo’. He later explained it was due to his deep respect for O Fenomeno. Last year, Ronaldo revealed that he sees many similarities between Jesus and his younger self. The ex-Barcelona, Inter Milan and Real Madrid No.9 lifted two World Cups with Brazil (and is the second-highest goalscorer in the competition’s history) on top of a cavalcade of domestic honours. He was crowned FIFA World Player of the Year three times and won the Ballon d’Or twice over the course of an extraordinary career so, naturally, it is a comparison that the Blues’ new boy welcomes. “It’s great to hear such things from him,” Jesus beams. “It makes me feel very proud. Ronaldo is a role model to me and he has always been my idol. It shows I’m doing the right things.” Comparisons between Ronaldo and Jesus became ubiquitous after the former’s proclamation, but not without some questioning their validity. It’s impossible to foresee whether Jesus will match his hero’s success during his career, but that shouldn’t matter for the time being. Besides, the comparisons are largely made to highlight his massive potential as much as the pair’s shared style of play, and some physical parallels, too. Jesus possesses the same rare fusion of strength, speed and technique that made his illustrious predecessor in the national team such an icon. These similarities – allied to the fact he is arguably the best true No.9 to emerge from Brazil since Ronaldo – have got everyone back home very, very excited indeed. At the time of Jesus’ arrival in Europe, however, there was uncertainty surrounding his relationship with another striker. The addition of Jesus to the City squad seemed to have an unsettling effect on Sergio Aguero. The 29-year-old Argentine was quickly dislodged from his perch as the line-leading striker and focal point – the first time this had happened to him since arriving from Atletico Madrid back in 2011. At that stage, given Pep’s preference for operating with a single centre-forward, it appeared the chances of Pep deploying both South Americans together were slim. Predictably, the press were quick to pontificate about how City legend Aguero would react to this threat to the status quo. And, unsurprisingly, u transfer talk soon followed, forcing Guardiola to insist on several occasions that he was intent on keeping hold of a player who at the time still had the best goals-to-minutes ratio in Premier League history. Jesus’ injury quickly quelled any potential crisis, and upon his hi return any fears of a tense relationship between the pair were quashed in the best way possible. Operating as part of an in-vogue 3-4-3 formation, Aguero and Jesus have given fans a glimpse of a bright, harmonious future. Both began the season in top form and their partnership now looks a particularly lethal prospect. Guardiola himself has recently claimed that the pair have got a “top relationship” off the pitch to match their blossoming association on it. An instructive sign of the veracity of his words came with Aguero’ Aguero’s selfless assist
“HOPEFULLY I’LL GET THE CHANCE TO PLAY AT THE WORLD CUP. I WANT CITY TO HAVE A GREAT SEASON FIRST. THE ONLY WAY TO DO THAT IS TO WIN TITLES”
to his team-mate against Liverpool in early September. The Argentine was arguably in a better position to score, but preferred to roll the ball to his colleague. “He welcomed me warmly when I first arrived at the club,” Jesus says of his strike partner. “I’m a member of a squad and I like to help – I’ve been helping him and he’s been helping me. He’s an established player not only at Manchester City, but in football. “At City, he’s the ultimate idol because of everything he has done for this club, all the goals he’s scored and being here such a long time. The fans love him. I’m very happy he’s on top form and it’s positive for the club. . We all know that when Aguero’s on the pitch, he can score in any moment and win us the match.” Their ‘top relationship’ off the pitch suggests their understanding on it could yet become all the more beneficial for City. The South American duo have got everything needed to become a deadly partnership in the mould of archetypal Premier League duos such as Andy Cole and Dwight Yorke. And like that pairing, who achieved so much success across Manchester, City’s new front two are ably assisted by a glittering array of attacking talents. You’re unlikely to hear Guardiola complaining omplaining about his attacking options, but with Raheem Sterling, Kevin De e Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, David Silva and Leroy Sane on their books, can the Blues’ offensive arsenal legitimately be compared to those of PSG, Barcelona and Real Madrid? “Yes, I believe so,” the youngster says, confidently. “Obviously, Barcelona and Real Madrid have the two best players in the world, but in terms of attacking options in general I think City can be compared to any team, because we have got top-quality quality players.” Jesus is reluctant to pick a favourite out of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. And any mention of the men with the extraterrestrial records naturally leads to a question about the belief in his own potential and whether he can scale similar heights. Jesus isn’t getting carried away. “I need to work really hard and improve a lot, and that’s what I’ll do,” he says. “Hopefully in the future I can be among the best players in the world, but there is a long way to go. There are currently several players who deserve the honour. For me, I see it as something far away. For now, I just want to win matches, titles and be happy.” The Manchester City forward places his compatriot Neymar third in the list of the world’s best players, and PSG’s $350m mega-signing has also had a hand in Jesus’ early rise. The flamboyant star – undoubtedly the most important Brazilian footballer of his generation – has taken Jesus under his wing during their get-togethers with the Selecao. If you think Jesus’ impact in England has been impressive, his success with Brazil, given the context of his opportunities, has been even more remarkable. His first big test in the famous yellow shirt came at last year’s Olympics, perhaps not the most coveted title in most corners of the globe, but an absolutely huge one for Brazilians. Not only was it the only international tournament they had never won, but they were coming off the back of a disastrous World Cup on home soil, which culminated in the earth-shattering 7-1 drubbing to Germany in the semi-final. And there had been two extremely poor showings at the Copa America. As a consequence, there was enormous pressure on the players to partially restore a tarnished reputation. So, while for many countries the under-23 event in Rio was a bit of an afterthought, Brazil – after a wrangle with Barcelona about his release – sent Neymar as their captain. It paid off, not just in gold medals but in the nascent signs of a Neymar-Jesus axis that promises to be crucial for the five-time World Cup winners’ immediate future. “My relationship with Neymar is very good – I think of him as an older brother,” Jesus says. “He’s been helping me a lot. We all know the player he is, but I’m more impressed with the person he is – the way he treats people. I was amazed to see his behaviour. I’m a big fan.” Twelve days after winning that gold medal, Jesus made his debut for Brazil’s senior XI. At that point, the Selecao were in sixth place of South America’s infamously tricky World Cup qualification group. Jesus bagged a brace in a 3-0 win in Ecuador, immediately securing a regular berth in Tite’s side. With the youngster in the team, Brazil finished the qualifying campaign 10 points clear at the top of the standings thanks to another four Jesus goals. A star had been born. It’s something of a local custom in Jardim Peri to patriotically paint the streets in the national colours to mark the arrival of another World Cup. Less than four years ago, Jesus and a group of friends helped daub the streets in green and gold, highlighting exactly how soon all this success has come to the forward. “For the past three World Cups I have painted the streets to celebrate the competition – it’s almost an obligation for the community,” he says. “Hopefully I will get the chance to play at the World Cup next summer to repay all the joy it brought me me. But there’s still a full season to be played before the World Cup. I still need to earn a place in Russia and I’m working really hard to get it. I want City to have a great season and the only way that will be possible is by winning titles. That’s my goal. Hopefully we’ll lift a trophy.” When Jesus first revealed that he used to paint the streets, he published an accompanying picture on his Instagram page that instantly went viral. One of the hashtags read: “I’ve always been a dreamer dreamer.” Just like the small boy holding a football football, gazing at the streets of Jardim Peri Peri, that he now has etched on his arm, Gabriel Jesus has a whole world of possibilities ahead of him. His mere presence at the World Cup finals in Russia next summer is not enough. “I have a dream that goes beyond just playing at the World Cup – I want to win it,” he reveals. Do that, and Jesus will be able to scoff all the rice and beans that he wants.
