Man City have confirmed that Gabriel Jesus will put on the jersey number 9 in the 2019/20 soccer season.
The Brazilian beforehand wore number 33 but the reigning Premier League champions have opted to award the 22-year-old with a extra recognisable squad number for a leading striker.
Nevertheless, Jesus has admitted that will probably be an incredible honour for him to put on the well-known number 9 shirt that has been worn by the likes of Nolito, Alvaro Negredo, Emmanuel Adebayor, Valeri Bojinov and Emile Mpenza,
“It is going to be an honour to put on the City number 9 shirt and I’ll do so with great satisfaction,” he informed Squawka on Saturday.
“I hope to score many goals wearing this jersey and assist City to more trophies within the coming seasons.
“It’s the number I put on with Brazil and as always, I’ll be giving all the things for City once I’m wearing it.”
Manchester City haven’t had an awesome number 9 for many years, with no strikers in the 21st century staking a claim to become one among City’s most iconic strikers in latest history.
The younger Brazilian now has the chance to progress and make sure that his place among the many City starting eleven becomes more regular than previous seasons, such is the burden of competing for a spot with club legend Sergio Aguero.
