However, he rarely started games at his previous club because the team was stacked with goal scorers all over the field.
Guardiola noticed Jesus’ impact on the field, despite not relying on him for goals, and praised the striker.
As quoted by Express Sport, he said:
He’s the best striker/defender I ever found to play in the three positions. [He] can play five minutes; he plays the best five minutes of his life.
He plays for 90 minutes; he will give everything. I had the feeling that in most cases, we would miss him, but it’s football, it’s life, and the successes, all of them, will be our happiness.
