Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus has opened up on the impact that Sergio Aguero has had at the club, and for him personally.

In an exclusive interview with Sky Sports this week, the Brazilian forward stated his appreciation for his teammate, Sergio Aguero - who was confirmed to be leaving the club at the end of the current season.

“For me he is the best player in the history of the club so we can learn a little bit but he is probably more of a striker than me, he has scored more than me. He goes onto the pitch and he scores.”

Gabriel Jesus continued, “When we play together I score one and he scores two, I score two and he scores three. But I think I am going to learn a lot in this time, in these next years.”

When asked about the hectic few months that now loom for Manchester City and the possibility of securing multiple trophies, Jesus remained optimistic about his sides hopes, however he was quick to point out just how difficult it would be.

“We have to face one game like a final, if we go there and play every game like a final I think we will be closer to the titles.”

He went on to say, “It is difficult, honestly so difficult. We have a lot of top players, we have a good team and we can win. But it is not as easy as it looks. It can happen one time in 20 years, 30 years. So we have to face every game like a final and then, after, we can see if we win or not.”
