Gabriel Jesus injury update

BACK: Gabriel Jesus returned to light training today

BACK: Gabriel Jesus returned to light training today

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus stepped up his recovery from injury today when he returned to the training field for the first time since February.

The Brazilian made a superb start to life in the City first team after his move from Palmeiras was ratified in January, scoring three goals in his first four games, including a match-winning double against Swansea at the Etihad.

However, he suffered a fractured metatarsal after just 14 minutes of the following game away at Bournemouth, with the early prognosis suggesting he could be out until the end of the season.

He recently began working in the gym in a bid to keep his fitness levels high – and this afternoon, on his 20th birthday, he returned to the training field just seven weeks after his initial setback.

And although he didn't take part in full training, focusing instead on some light ball work, it’s a sight City fans will nonetheless have been pleased to see.  

We wish Gabriel well in his continued recovery and hope to see him back in a blue shirt as soon as possible.
