Manchester City will start their new quest for the Champions League final on Tuesday evening. The English champion opens his campaign with a duel against the struggling Sevilla FC. And to make the difference, Kevin De Bruyne is counted on, among others.
The Belgian playmaker was again of gold value against Aston Villa (1-1) last weekend. For example, Erling Haaland signed for his tenth goal in six Premier League matches. But especially De Bruyne’s unparalleled assist on the Norwegian goal machine was of an exceptional level. In England, the reactions were therefore full of praise for KDB’s performance, which tops the assist ranking in the Premier League with 4 assists in 6 competition matches.
But in the meantime De Bruyne is already 31 years old and he is inevitably approaching the autumn of his career. However, coach Pep Guardiola is not worried about that yet. “He still has three years left on his contract, I think”, the coach is quoted at SportsBible. “And what I can say is that he is in much better shape at the moment than in the same period last season. Much, much better. So I don’t feel that he will stop soon. He enjoys playing football at a high level.”
However, one day it will be inevitable that De Bruyne will put an end to it and then City will have to have a suitable successor. But Guardiola is not worried about that. “The team is the most important thing, but certain players can do that little bit more. Txiki Begiristain (Sporting Director) and the scouting department will have to work on this. A club like City must always be ready.”
