Gabriel Jesus has scored three goals in four appearances for Manchester City. In his last two games, he has relegated the absolutely brilliant Sergio Aguero to the bench.
The 19-year-old also has a unique celebration it seems. When he scored against Swansea (he scored two) this past weekend, Jesus celebrated by making a phone-call gesture.
Fans quickly latched onto it and a quote from the man himself started going viral…
Gabriel Jesus: “My celebration was a message to my ex gf who didn’t answer my calls at Palmerias, but messaged me when I moved to City.” 👏🏻 pic.twitter.com/ok2KPaKrIu— FourFourTweet (@FourFourTweet) February 9, 2017
But then, it seems that this is NOT TRUE.
A Squawka report suggests that Gabriel has been doing this celebration since quite some time – and it’s a testament to how he’s always in touch with his mother despite globe-trotting. It adds that his mother Vera is one of the biggest influences in his life.
The caption translates to “Hello Mother”.
There’s one more as well…
So sorry all, he’s not sending a message to his ex – even though that would make for an equally brilliant story!
