Gabriel Jesus is ready to play anywhere to help Manchester City win trophies after his role in the Champions League victory over Real Madrid.
The Brazil striker started as a left winger in the 2-1 win at the Santiago Bernebeu as Pep Guardiola made a surprise team selection in the first leg.
Jesus scored the equaliser but also worked hard to double-up as support for Benjamin Mendy at left-back and the 22-year-old was delighted with how the tactics worked out.
“I enjoy the work,” he said. “It doesn’t matter if I have to run back to help my team-mates, I am young, I have the power and energy to do it.
“I enjoy the position a lot because I can go back and help the full-backs. I am very comfortable there but we have a lot of quality players.
“We are very proud of the performance but we know they have a lot of quality, a lot of amazing players. They are a big club and now there will be another game, the second leg.”
“The challenge is coming and it’s the biggest of the season. We know Real can go to the Etihad and beat us,” he said.
“Sunday is important. It’s been a big week because we played Leicester away, a team with a lot of quality, and went seven points in front of them.
“So we’ve had two very good games – and now it’s a final. It’s important to win the first title of the season.”
