- Gabriel Jesus has inked an amazing tattoo of his mother on his arm
- His mother Lucia has always been monitoring his movement
- Jesus scored seven goals in 11 Premier League games last season
Manchester City star Gabriel Jesus has paid an excellent tribute to his mother Vera Lucia by having an amazing tattoo of her inked on his arm.
The Brazilian superstar is one of the rising strikers in the world whose mother contributed immensely to his success.
Jesus who scored seven goals for Manchester City last season says he has only two idols which is God and his mother Vera.
Tough Vera is famously overbearing and has always been firmly in charge of her son's affairs, both on and off the field and controls his finances – giving him pocket money.
And ever since his first professional contract with Brazilian side Palmeiras, Vera has made sure she received Gabriel Jesus’ salary so she can pass on only as much as he needs – “to keep his feet on the ground”.
