Rivaldo advises Gabriel Jesus: You should leave Man City

Brazil legend Rivaldo has advised Gabriel Jesus to leave Manchester City.

The striker largely played second fiddle to Sergio Aguero this season at the Etihad, starting only 20 games.

Writing for Betfair, he said: "Gabriel Jesus wasn't as influential this season as he was in the last one and I think he has two valid options for next season.

"As a young prospect he could continue and keep evolving with Guardiola, hoping that more chances come.

"Or he could leave for another club of similar stature to try to become a regular starting 11 player.

"I see the second option as the best solution.

"He already gained experience and maturity at City and looks prepared for a new challenge in a team where he could be more important for the team."
