'I think we’re different, me and Sergio' - Gabriel Jesus discusses his role at Manchester City

Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus is willing to play on the right-wing if that will guarantee him a starting role at the club. 

The Brazilian is normally used as a striker but has played on the wing before with the Brazil national team and his former club. 

Jesus is always up against one of the Premier League's greatest strikers in Sergio Aguero, meaning starting roles are at times limited. 

The two strikers, however, started the Carabao match against Southampton on Tuesday night, and he indicates he is ready to sacrifice the number nine spot if that will guarantee regular starts. 

“It’s City you know! The competition is very high,” Jesus said. “City has good players, an amazing team, so whoever is playing is going to do good work.

“I like this position but I am always going to respect the manager’s decision.

“Since the Copa America, I’ve played right winger [for Brazil]. I like it. I started there in this position for Brazil and my old club. And after I played as a striker.

Jesus then added that he is still learning, and is privileged to learn from the League's 'best striker'. 

“Of course I have to learn from him, he’s a legend. He scores in every game. I won’t score every game. I think we’re different, me and Sergio.

Aguero is in good form this season, scoring 12 goals in all competitions, with eight of those coming in the Premier League. 

He is also City's all-time top scorer with 243 goals from 350 matches.
