Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is worried that the season could be over for Brazilian star Gabriel Jesus after suffering an injury while featuring for the club against Bournemouth.
Before picking the injury, Gabriel Jesus has made a significant impact at the Etihad Stadium scoring three goals in his first three games for the club.
The 19-year-old has went through a surgery on Thursday, February, 16, 2017 for a broken metatarsal in his right foot in Barcelona, with Guardiola’s trusted surgeon Dr Ramon Cugat.
It was initially explained that the Brazilian would be out for three months, and Guardiola who has been so impressed with the lad's performance stated that there is no guarantee Gabriel Jesus will return for Manchester City this season.
“Yesterday night he had an operation. It was really good. What’s important now is a good recovery.
“I don’t know if it’s the end of the season, next season. Now we must be calm, give our support to his family and wait for him to come back,'' the former Barcelona coach explained
While Jesus' injury is a cruel blow to Guardiola's title aspirations, the 46-year-old Spaniard will now have to fall back on Sergio Aguero and Nigerian youngster Kelechi Iheanacho.
