How Gabriel Jesus celebrated Raheem Sterling’s goal
Some eagle-eyed TV viewers have paid attention to how Gabriel Jesus celebrated Raheem Sterling’s goal against Everton.
After ending his own goal-drought in the team, Jesus got carried away when Sterling found the target.
Sterling scored with a header, and as the England international was going for goal Gabriel Jesus was miming out how he’d attack the ball with an air-header.
After Sterling scored, Gabriel Jesus performed a one man dance by himself in celebration.
Gabriel Jesus after Everton
After the Everton game, Gabriel Jesus gave a rare interview in English on Sky Sports.
The Brazilian expressed his relief after finding the target in the league:
I am so happy with this because I think I need it.
I try to play to help my team-mates and in the game against Hoffenheim I think I played well but didn’t score. But that is football, that is a striker’s life.
I try to play well, try to score but some games you don’t. I am happy with my goals but I am more happy with the win.
