Some Nigerian football fans are in rapturous mood following the injury to Manchester City youngster, Gabriel Jesus.
The arrival of the Brazilian early in January saw their beloved Kelechi Iheanacho drop down the pecking order – failing to make Pep Guardiola’s last three matchday squads.
However, the 19-year-old suffered a fractured metatarsal in City’s 2-0 win over Bournemouth on Monday – an injury which could rule him out of the season.
This is was what some Nigerians have to say about that.
Wait?! Gabriel Jesus is out for 2-3 months?!
Kelechi Iheanacho is serving a living God oh!
Or a very strong juju man

So Gabriel Jesus is injured now.
Kelechi Iheanacho is from Owerri.
Owerri is roughly 20 minutes drive to Okija.

Now that Kelechi Iheanacho’s nemesis at Man city, Gabriel Jesus is injured, will this open the door for him again?
