Man City attacker Gabriel Jesus: I want to keep playing with Bernardo Silva

Manchester City attacker Gabriel Jesus was delighted to be part of their Champions League draw with Sporting CP last night.

The 0-0 stalemate sees City progress to the quarterfinals 5-0 on aggregate.

Gabriel said afterwards to Eleven Sports: "We took the field to do our job, knowing we had a five-goal lead. Trying to win and play football. Unfortunately we didn't win, but we qualified.

"Any opponent that comes will be very difficult, because it's the Champions League. We have to play our way and always look for victory."

On Bernardo Silva, Gabriel added: "I have a lot of affection for Bernardo Silva, with whom I get on well. I want him to be very happy, whether here or anywhere else he chooses. Obviously I want to continue playing with him."
