Man City striker Gabriel: I must learn from Aguero

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus says he's been learning every day from Sergio Aguero.

Aguero is the most prolific overseas player in the history of the competition after his hat-trick for Manchester City at Aston Villa on Sunday took to him to 177 goals – beyond Thierry Henry's mark of 175.

Gabriel said: "He is a great guy and a legend of course. I'm in the same position so I have to learn.

"Of course I think our football is different - he is more of a striker, more of a finisher. We work together, every single day. I can learn from him. So that's what I have to do.

"He's a legend of the Premier League, a legend of the club - when he goes to the pitch he scores always.

"I go to the pitch to enjoy my football. If I have the opportunity to break [the record] of course I want to. But I want to go to the pitch to enjoy football and to score goals."
