Rivaldo backing Man City ace Gabriel Jesus for career best season

Rivaldo is backing Manchester City ace Gabriel Jesus to have a career best season.

Gabriel scored twice and assisted twice in the Copa America this summer as Brazil won the competition infront of their own fans.

Rivaldo told Betfair: "Gabriel Jesus is full of confidence after a successful Copa America campaign for Brazil and looking forward to regaining his place in Manchester City's first team.

"He lost his place to Sergio Aguero last season, but I believe Jesus has the ability to be a starter in any team.

"The morale and confidence that he is bringing from Copa America could help him to become a regular starter and scorer for the Citizens this season."
