Kevin De Bruyne thinks that’s he’s close to the 5 best players in the world. He said: “But who am I to decide that? I don’t know, but I think I’m pretty close. I think I’m more of a complete footballer than I was a few years ago.”
The candidate of the Ballon d’Or
Kevin De Bruyne says he’s “probably not too far away” from the call from Ballon d’Or. Becoming in recent years more like a “complete footballer.”Kevin arrived at the Etihad Stadium from Wolfsburg for £ 55 million ($ 71 million) in the summer of 2015. Moving back to the PL after a failed performance at Chelsea at the beginning of his career. The Belgian International has since spent more than 200 matches in all competitions for City. Scoring 50 goals, while at the same time gaining a foothold among the best players in Europe. City won seven major trophies with De Bruyne pulling strings in the middle of the field. Including two Premier League titles, and this weekend should be an opportunity to show itself.
Great performance of De Bruyne
Pep Guardiola’s team are scheduled to meet with Aston Villa at the Wembley Sunday’s Finals in Carabao Cup, four days after beating Real Madrid in their last 16 Champions League clashes. De Bruyne assisted Gabriel Jesús and scored from a penalty spot in a 2-1 victory at Santiago Bernabéu, re-establishing himself as a man for grand occasions. Despite his recent success at Etihad, the 28-year-old has not yet earned the top ten finishes in Ballon d’Or voting, coming in at 14th place during the 2019 ceremony. However, answering the question of whether he was close to pulling up this trend, Kevin expressed the conviction that he is “pretty close” to being recognized as one of the best players in the world.
Manchester City talisman
“I’m probably not too far away. But who am I to decide this?” Man City talisman told reporters.”I’m just trying to be the best I can be. I played well the past few years and even last season, I had many injuries, but the times that I was on the field, I did OK. Even in Germany I had good years, and I felt happy, but who decides the best players, I don’t know, but I think I’m pretty close.”It helps to be nominated for a Ballon d’Or but above all a team performance. I know if the team will perform well and I will perform with them, I will get marks.
Over the past few years, I have been arguing for the top 30 in the world, and that’s good because you work very hard in your profession, and to admit that it’s perfect in what you do is always good to hear.”It gives me the motivation to stay there and be at the top for as long as possible because playing football is for a short time, and I want to be the best version of what I can be, I don’t know what it is, but every year is different and this year went very well for me.
“I think I’m more of a complete football player than a few years ago. I had a few good years in my career, but I think that either side of the ball, mentally, heading the team, I’m better now than two or three years ago. I think I’m doing very well, and feel comfortable and happy with the way I perform.”
