- Manchester City attacker, Gabriel Jesus, has taken time to show his fans he is recovering just fine from his ligament injury
- The Brazilian striker now drives around the city with a mobility scooter
- He is expected to return to Guardiola's side in February 2018
Manchester City attacker, Gabriel Jesus after damaging his medial collateral ligament in his left knee on New Year's Eve has taken time to assure of improvements in his recovery process.
The striker might not be able to play football at the moment, but that has not gotten the better of him mentally as he took his mobility scooter out for spin on Wednesday, January 10.
The striker has seldomly been spotted by fans and friends commuting across Manchester with his 'precious scooter'
The former Palmeiras striker posted a photo of himself on his Instagram page posing on the scooter with his trusty crutches stowed behind him, which he named 'My Loves' last week and he captioned the picture " De role na quebrada" which when translated from Portuguese to English means "Roll in the gulch".
Hiring the mobility scooter for the week will have set the striker back £21 as he gets cruise around the shops and support that left leg at the same time.
Since damaging his MCL, Jesus has continued to do some cardio after hitting the gym to use the rowing machine.
