The Spanish technical director of Manchester City referred to the performance of the Brazilian footballer both in the first leg and in the second leg against Real Madrid.
Whether in the Santiago Bernabeu or in the Etihad Stadium, Gabriel Jesus shone with Manchester City to eliminate Real Madrid from the round of 16 of the UEFA champions league, something that makes Pep Guardiola.
“I think Gabriel was the man in these two games. He scored in Madrid, caused the red card and today he gave the assist first and scored a goal. He was so decisive for us, helped by the whole team, the way we fought and we suffer in bad times, “the Spanish coach told the media.
And he added “Gabriel always helps us more than goals but for the forwards it is important to score. He is the best to take advantage of mistakes, by intuition and aggressiveness. That is what happened in this match.”
Finally, Guardiola went ahead to the quarter-final clash and closed: “Last season we played against Lyon, we lost and we drew. We couldn’t beat them and that’s the reality. I know the quality of Rudi García as a coach very well.”
