EPL: It’s either you accept Guardiola’s way or you leave Man City – Gabriel Jesus

Arsenal striker, Gabriel Jesus has said he needed a change after five years under Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.

The Brazilian claims he feels “free” playing under Mikel Arteta at the Emirates.

Jesus joined the Gunners from City for an initial £45million this summer.

Under Guardiola, he was often used as a wide forward, with a false nine occupying the furthest position on the pitch.

“The thing was the way [Guardiola] understands football and what he wanted,” Jesus told ESPN Brasil.

“Then it was up to you to accept it or not. If you don’t accept it, ‘thank you’ and let’s go for another challenge.

“I accepted it for a while, but there came a moment when I said: ‘I want another thing for myself.’ I thanked him, ‘thanks for everything,’ he understood, and we moved on.

“It is different here at Arsenal. The football is different — different players, different ways to play.

“At City, it was different. The striker didn’t touch the ball that much, you see this by watching the games. And, when it was time to touch the ball, it was not the striker, because [Guardiola] ended up putting a midfielder to come closer. OK, fine. So, I decided to change.”
