Gabriel Jesus admits Sergio Aguero is a better striker than him.
Manchester City announced that they will be ending their 10-year association with the Argentine this summer.
He is their record goalscorer at 257 goals in close to 400 games. Jesus was signed to ultimately succeed into Aguero’s spot.
“I can learn a little bit [from him] but he’s more of a proper striker than me, he scored more than me,” Jesus told Sky Sports.
“He goes to the pitch and he scores. He’s more striker than me, I can say that because I work with him every day and I play a lot with him.
“When we play together I score one, he scores two, I score two and he scores three. I think I’m going to learn a lot in these next years to become a proper striker who scores a lot.
“I have to go more in the box. Sometimes I don’t go in the box, that’s why I don’t score a lot. Normally if you see the best strikers at the moment they all go to the box, some of them go outside the box to create and then go to the box.
“Not me, I think my football is… I go outside the box, I create with my friends and I wait for the goal. Sometimes I go and I score, but I have to put in my head that when I arrive, I score.”
