The Manchester City gamemaster knows that getting such rewards comes through winning titles, but he doesn’t care much about it.
We no longer need to introduce him, Kevin De Bruyne is the best in the world at his post. A playing master of Manchester City, the Belgian international is the real conductor of Pep Guardiola’s team. This Saturday evening, he will therefore have to respond to Chelsea, in the Champions League final, in Porto.
Ceferin: “There won’t be a Superleague for at least 10 years”
Against his former club, Kevin De Bruyne has the opportunity to win the first Champions League of his career. An achievement almost necessary to be considered among the greatest. Moreover, the Belgian is aware of it, if the individual trophies are not his priority, they are obtained in the victories.
“In the end, it’s the others who decide”
“I think the players have no influence on the Ballon d’Or. Sometimes you can play a brilliant game and you can be on the losing side, and sometimes it does. To be in the race for those kinds of rewards individual, you have to win things “, analyzed the Mancunien, before facing Chelsea.
“In the end, it’s the others who decide. I’m happy with who I am, as a player and as a person, so I feel comfortable in both cases”, then added Kevin De Bruyne, who has never been one of those who favors statistics, still managing to create a place of choice in the debate.
One thing is certain, the Ballon d’Or 2021 has a good chance of being awarded to one of the winners of at least one of two major competitions this year: namely the Champions League and Euro 2020. Between his place in the C1 final with City and Belgium’s chances at the Euro, Kevin de Bruyne has arguments.
