Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola warned on Friday that Brazilian teenage sensation, Gabriel Jesus, could be out of action for up to three months.

The former Barcelona boss said the 19-year-old  may not play again this season.

Jesus who has scored three goals in five games since joining City in the January transfer window, broke a bone in his foot during City’s 2-0 win away to Bournemouth in the Premier League on Monday.

“He’s coming back when he is fit,” Guardiola said in a press conference on Friday ahead of this weekend’s FA Cup fixtures.

“I don’t know if it will be the end of this season or next season… His recovery is between two and three months.”

City paid Brazilian club Palmeiras an initial £27 million ($33 million, 31 million euros) for Jesus.

The striker scored at West Ham and twice against Swansea and Jesus was hoping to become the third City player — after Emmanuel Adebayor and Kevin de Bruyne — to score on each of his first three Premier League starts.

But he lasted just 15 minutes at south coast side Bournemouth’s Dean Court ground before going off injured.
