Pep Guardiola has stated that Gabriel Jesus will keep featuring for Manchester City as long as he keeps scoring.
The 19-year-old forward continued his fine start to life at the Etihad, scoring a brace in the win over Swansea.
Jesus was picked to lead the line ahead of Aguero, after impressing in the match against Tottenham.
Asked if Jesus would keep playing as long as he keeps scoring, Guardiola told Sky Sports: “What do you think? Of course, yeah.
“But it’s not just about the goals, we had a problem this season with the goals, but he has this ability. The first five, ten minutes against Tottenham he showed us everything, so it’s good. It’s necessary in teams to have one person who scores goals.”
“We are so delighted with what he has done,” Guardiola added. “He is a real fighter, wins duels and he is a striker with the sense of the goal. He’s 19 years old, so we are so happy, happy with what the club have done and to have him here.”
