‘I will never accept that my son disrespects the daughters of others. No son of mine is going to get someone else’s daughter pregnant. I demand respect because I raised all three of them on my own, with the help of God,’ was quoted as saying by Daily Mail.
The paper reports that the overbearing mother of Manchester City’s new £27million wonderkid has always been firmly in charge of his affairs, to the extent she received his salary so as ‘to keep his feet on the ground’.
The report said in a recent interview, she said: ‘Girlfriends have to live by my rules, and they’ll be no heavy kissing. Staying over, only once in a while.”
To prove he is mummy’s boy, Gabriel has a tattoo on his body which reads: ‘Every step I make, every road I take, every path I choose, your hand will guide me, Vera Lucia.’
He said she would have prevented him from doing the tattoo had it been she knew about his plan to do it, explaining : ‘The tattoo I had done, I didn’t tell her that I was going to do it, but when I got home, my mother was much calmer when she saw that her name was on it.
‘She liked it more than I did, so she didn’t scold me too much. She controls me a lot with this question of tattoos, she doesn’t let me go out getting myself tattooed.’
