Former World Cup winner Romario has told Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus that he needs to “have enough sex” before leading Brazil’s quest for global glory in Russia.  That was his big advice. 

The now 52-year-old, who is currently the senator of Rio de Janeiro, has imparted some of his wisdom ahead of his nation’s quest for a sixth world crown.  

The former soccer star told Lance! Magazine: “Have enough sex is one piece of advice – as is making the most you can of your days off.

“And, of course, you must concentrate on match days and during the games.

“I believe Jesus is quite aware of his football and what it represents for the Brazilian nation.

“He has to arrive at the World Cup and score a goal. That’s the most important thing.”

I think this is sound advice. Doesn’t take a genius to know it can only help his confidence on the field. Way to state the obvious Romario, whoever you are.
