Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus has praised African wingers Mohamed Salah and Riyad Mahrez.

The Brazil international discussed the two players in an interview with The National UAE on Tuesday.

Jesus lauded Egyptian superstar Salah, who is on the books of City’s English rivals Manchester City, Liverpool FC, as a quality player

“Salah has shown his quality in the last two seasons, he has scored a lot,” Jesus said.

“I don’t train with him, but I know he is quality. I do train with Riyad.

The 22-year-old marksman also lauded Algeria captain Mahrez as one of the most technical players he has played with.

“He is one of the most technical players I have played with; his first touch is amazing,” Jesus said.

“An amazing player that showed the world how good he is at Leicester [City] and is now playing well for us, scoring goals and making assists all the time.”
