Manchester City-bound Gabriel Jesus avoided injury last night during an exhibition game in Brazil when the 19-year-old wonder kid was hacked down by none other than a pitch invader.
The incident occurred during a charity game between Amigos do Jackson and Amigos do Valdiva which showcased some of Brazil’s best young talent.
As Jesus picked up the ball on the edge of the opposition box, a gobshite fan ran onto the pitch before tackling the striker from behind…

That’s a straight red right, surely!
Luckily, Jesus came out of the challenge unscathed.
The player will now join up with pep Guardiola’s side in January in a whopping £27million deal where he’ll join a pretty decent City front-line.
