Man City striker Jesus: Brazil family helped me settle

Gabriel Jesus has said his Brazilian 'family' help him settle at Manchester City.

The striker has played second fiddle to Sergio Aguero since joining from Palmeiras in January 2017.

But the 21-year-old says he has plenty of support from his countrymen.

He told Bleacher Report: "It helps having people around who are from the same culture and speak the same language as you.

"The atmosphere is really good. It's not just those guys who help me; everyone in the squad looks after one other.

"But having guys from the same place as you is a bonus. We can talk about anything. We're a family."
