COME HERE: Jesus shares the love with Bernardo after City's fourth

Gabriel Jesus will wear the iconic No.9 shirt for City next season.

The Brazilian striker chose the No.33 shirt when he first joined the Club in 2017 and has scored 45 goals in the 100 appearances he’s made for the Blues in that number.

But with No.9 being available since the departure of Nolito, Jesus has elected to take it on for the 2019/20 campaign.

“It will be an honour to wear the City number nine shirt and I’ll do so with great pride," he said.

“I hope to score many goals wearing this jersey and help City to more trophies in the coming seasons.

“It’s the number I wear with Brazil and as always, I’ll be giving everything for City when I’m wearing it.”

Any further new squad numbers will be released in due course.
