Jesus walks! City star pictured without crutches as he steps up recovery

Date Posted,April 3, 2017

Gabriel Jesus has given Manchester City an injury boost after he was pictured walking without the aid of crutches.

The striker fractured his metatarsal in the Blues’ win over Bournemouth in February after scoring three goals in his first five games for Pep Guardiola’s side.

Brazilian Jesus turned 20 today and was snapped returning to his flat in Manchester without crutches as he steps up his recovery.

The images will boost City fans’ hopes they will see the youngster in their club’s colours again before the end of the season, with Guardiola saying it was a possibility ahead of their draw against Arsenal.

“The crutches are gone,” he said. “He has started to walk and hopefully he can come back to the pitches and start to run.

“Hopefully he can help us in the last games of the season and come back for us in the pre-season.”

Jesus has been highly impressive in the 293 minutes of first-team football he has managed so far since his switch to the Premier League.

City go to Chelsea on Wednesday evening 11 points behind the runaway leaders with nine games to go.
