Gabriel Jesus: No surgery needed

Manchester City have been given a boost ahead of pre-season with the news that Gabriel Jesus will not require surgery on his facial injury.

The 20-year-old striker was involved in an accidental collision with City team-mate Nicolas Otamendi during Argentina's recent 1-0 win over Brazil.

Initially it was thought that Jesus would need an operation, but he revealed it won't be necessary and that he will be ready again in three weeks.

"I did a facial resonance, several exams and I have GOOD news," he wrote on his Facebook account.

"My recovery is going very well and I won't need surgery. In 15 days I will be reassessed, but all signs show that I will be back within three weeks!

"Thanks a lot to everyone that sent me messages, who supported me, sent positive vibes and prayed for me!"
