Manchester City signing Gabriel Jesus described his debut for the club as a ‘dream come true’ after coming off the bench in Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham.
The forward, who completed his move to City for £27million last week,entered the fray in the 82nd minute and almost made a dream start as he saw his strike disallowed for offside.
Ultimately Jesus was unable to prevent his side dropping two points as they threw away a two-goal lead at the Etihad but the Brazilian remained upbeat.
‘I’m happy for this opportunity to debut at City’s home,’ Jesus told ESPN Brasil. ‘I’m not very glad about the draw. We had the match in our hands.
‘I’m getting used to English football. Everything can happen from what we saw today. The speed is different from Brazilian football. I must adapt as quick as I can to do well.
‘It was very important for me to come on tonight, to have this confidence from my team-mates and my coach. Unfortunately, I was offside (for the disallowed goal). I started celebrating while the whole stadium was in silence.
‘But it’s a dream come true to play in the Premier League.’
