Gabriel Jesus started his adventure with football in a tiny club Anhanguera. At 15 years of age, he showcased himself at a youth “Copa Sao Paulo” tournament, where he scored 29 goals and attracted attention from the biggest Brasilian clubs. In 2013, he moved to Palmeiras. He became a real goalscoring machine in the youth setup of “Verdao”. He made his debut in the senior team and is a real fan favorite. He played very well at the U-20 World Cup 2015, where he managed to start 6 games and help Brazil to a second place at the tournament.



“He will become a major player in Brazilian football, and also the Seleçāo, if they have patience. He is a boy who is easy to speak with and work with and who is different to the others in the question of training, always giving more than 100 per cent.”

(Bruno Petri – Palmeiras youth coach)
