Gabriel Jesus joined Arsenal last summer ending his five-year spell with Manchester City.
The Brazilian striker went on to make 236 appearances for the Cityzens and win four Premier League titles in those five trophy-laden years.
Jesus was seeking more playing time due to Man City’s summer pursuit of Erling Haaland last year.
He often played second fiddle to Sergio Aguero who used to command the No.9 spot.
Jesus has now opened up on his struggles at Man City and explained how Pep Guardiola made him cry and leave the Etihad.
Jesus said: “There was a Champions League game, PSG, at home, in which he put Zinchenko as a false 9. Crazy thing.
“The day before, he didn’t even use him [Zinchenko] in training, he had put me in as a striker… Zinchenko even joked with me: ‘that day I felt bad for you. I called my mother to talk: ‘I want to leave.’ I’m going home, because he put him [Zinchenko] on, and he didn’t put me on. He put a left-back there. I went crazy.
“There was a lot of that with [Guardiola], and it’s not easy. But one evolves. It is really hard. That’s when I decided, I didn’t want to stay anymore. And I decided to leave.”
