Gabriel Jesus explains why he was more prepared for the Copa America

The Manchester City footballer has lifted the continental trophy after Brazil defeated Peru in the final at Maracana Stadium.

Brazil couldn’t make it to the last four of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

But 12 months after that, they ended up a 12-year drought and lifted the Copa America at home soil.

And Manchester City footballer Gabriel Jesus explains why he was more prepared for this competition than for the one in Russia.

“I don’t see it as a ‘turning up’ – I learned a lot after the World Cup,” he told the club’s official website.

“I came better prepared mentally and professionally.”

“I worked hard at City,” he continued.

“In the beginning, it was a bit complicated but with the help of my family, friends, and colleagues, I could focus again on my football.”
