Cape Town - Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus says he is happy that he has the opportunity to work with a coach of the calibre of Pep Guardiola.

The 19-year-old Jesus, who is currently out nursing an injury, made the move to England in January after City paid Brazilian club Palmeiras a fee believed to be worth £27m.

The Brazil international made a sensational start to life at the Etihad Stadium, scoring three goals in his first five appearances and ousting Sergio Aguero from the starting line-up.

Jesus though has given credit to Guardiola for the way he has managed him.

Speaking at the launch of the International Champions Cup, Jesus said: "Pep is a great coach, we all know it.

"As a person, I have the opportunity and the honour of knowing him.

"I see he is a very good person, so that helps a lot. That's not to say what a huge professional he is [too], that's a big difference [from the other coaches I have worked with]."
