Kevin De Bruyne Didn't Mind Liverpool Fans Attacking Manchester City Bus

Kevin De Bruyne Didn't Mind Liverpool Fans Attacking Manchester City Bus

The pair have formed an outstanding partnership as the creative force in a City team that is on track to reach a century of both goals and points in the Premier League.

Not exactly the environment for a young player like De Bruyne to thrive in - we can be pretty sure Chelsea would do things differently in hindsight.

"Some teams don't do music but a lot of teams I've played in have".

De Bruyne was eventually granted that wish, with three seasons at Wolfsburg seeing him offer enough to tempt City into a £55 million move.

"I voted for Salah", the Belgium midfielder told BT Sport.

This week, he revealed who he voted for in the competition.

The Young Player of the Year award is for players age 23 or younger, and can be won multiple times.

The Belgian star, now reputed among the world's best players, claims that he only spoke twice to the Special One, who was sacked the following season by the Blues after a bad start left them floating above the relegation zone.

Salah has been in scintillating form this season for The Reds.

De Bruyne played just over two hours worth of action for Chelsea in the 2013/14 season before losing his place. He is used perfectly by Liverpool manager Juergen Klopp in a role that allows him to cut in from the right wing and often leave him as the player furthest forward, with Firmino dropping deep from his central-striker role.

Wednesday evening may not have gone to plan, but it's safe to say that Kevin Bruyne is having an incredible season.

De Bruyne has said that they aren't comparable as players, but admitted that Salah's record speaks for itself.

"I'm a high-risk player, I know that myself". With the statistic how are we going to compare ourselves? I have no idea. The irrepressible Salah started Liverpool's goal spree in the 12th minute when, benefitting from a contentious decision not to flag him offside, he burst clear and set up Roberto Firmino. It's just the way it goes, in life, in football'.
