Jesus is well known to the England squad, with many of them having faced him on multiple occasions when their domestic side have taken on Manchester City, and hot on the heels of Dani Alves calling Jesus the ‘new Ronaldo’, Brazil coach Tite has also been speaking about his boy wonder.
The Express report Tite said: “City should be very pleased with Palmeiras and the coaches there, who formed a player who is already at such a good level.
“He came to England with natural fluency. He has great mental capacity and technical ability. He didn’t need much time to adapt to English football, he was already playing at a very good level.
“But Gabriel, like any player, can only shine when he has a decent team around him. That is what we will be trying to do.”
“England have a new generation of players coming through.
“Even though Gareth Southgate has only had 13 games so far, they have players like Dele Alli and Harry Kane, and experience with Gary Cahill. They are a very technical team with a physical presence. I see them as one of the favourites for the World Cup.”
