Former Manchester United player Gary Neville shares ways to turn the Belgian midfielder into a very dangerous drill in the hands of Pep.
The defending champion, Man City, is flying high under the guidance of the genius brain of Pep Guardiola and the talented feet of Kevin De Bruyne. After the 2018/2019 season spent most of the time sidelined by injuries, the Belgian midfielder marked his spectacular return.
The former Chelsea star set an unbelievable record with a hat trick in Belgium’s 4-0 destruction to Scotland. He became the first player to own 3 passes in the EURO qualifier, more specifically, De Bruyne took only 32 minutes to complete it.
In the club shirt, the 28-year-old star owns 8 assists after the last 6 matches with Man City. His excellent form contributed greatly to the Etihad team winning jubilant victories and fiercely chasing Liverpool on the rankings.
Pep solved the problem of filling the void left by De Bruyne in the 2018/2019 season. The Spanish captain put his faith in Bernardo Silva’s shoulders and reaped great sweet fruits. B.Silva provides creativity and delicious opportunities for the surrounding teammates.
Can see, De Bruyne increasingly becoming a fearsome weapon in the hands of Pep. The intelligent play thinking, the keen observation mind, the impressive ability to create an impression from the 28-year-old midfielder to help the ball to control the ball of the blue half of Manchester is promoted optimally.
“Unbelievable. It reminded me of the peak time I spent playing alongside David Beckham at Man United. De Bruyne is recreating Beckham’s fantastic, previous quality passes. I think the Premier League will hardly own such a good midfielder for a long time to come”, former player Gary Neville told Sky Sports.
The Belgian midfielder can shine in the center circle in the middle of the pitch or play in a two-wing hallway when needed. De Bruyne always put his teammates in a good position to receive the ball, finding the empty space behind the opponent.
Experts say De Bruyne is the true boss of half the space on the opponent’s court. The Belgian is flexible in the play, emitting extremely dangerous when able to lead the ball straight into the middle, attracting your defenders and launching deadly assists or long shots from thunder.
De Bruyne possesses the speed of a full-back but appears to excel in technical quality. He has the ability to handle David Silva’s skillful ball but has a superior speed.
