Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has backed Gabriel Jesus to cope with the departure of his family back to Brazil and believes it won’t have a negative impact on his form
Jesus’s relatives had been with him in England for a short period but had to travel back to Brazil after their visas expired.
The 21-year-old expressed his wish that they had remained after he scored four times in Wednesday’s 9-0 Carabao Cup semi-final first leg win over Burton.
Asked about this Guardiola said: “The private life is the private life and if they need something we are there. We are there to help. But of course, we cannot substitute the mother and when the family can’t be here, it’s difficult.
“They have to handle the situation and of course he is not alone, he has friends. He has incredible relationship with the Brazilian guys, like Danilo, Fernandinho, [and the Portuguese speaker] Bernardo [Silva], many, many players here. I think it won’t be a problem for the next months.
“But we don’t know the private lives and the private lives can affect a lot their performance, shorter to medium time. So any time when you have any problems it can happen, we are going to try and help. In the case of Gabriel, it’s like this. Beyond that I don’t know what we should do.”
