Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne still feels as though he can improve. After returning from a long term injury that kept him out for much of last season.

Belgian international and Man City maestro Kevin De Bruyne has told Goal, that he feels as though… “I’m still getting better.” After returning from knee and hamstring issues that held the midfielder to only eleven starts last campaign.

“I feel good and I’m becoming better. It’s still the beginning of the season, so sometimes it’s heavy [going], but I feel fine, so everything will be OK this season.”


The creative-playmaker has been more than ‘fine,’ so far this season. Contributing three assists in his first two games, including two beautifully whipped crosses against Tottenham.

De Bruyne added (when asked about the performance); “We played well and I think we deserved to win. The team played really well and played offensively the way we want to play.”

“We didn’t get the three points, but that’s the only thing we didn’t get. We want to win every game but it’s very difficult.”

“We deserved to win and we will go again next week and everything will be fine.”

If De Bruyne’s comments are true and this is just the start of what’s coming. It’s a fair warning for the Premier League, as the Belgian signals his intentions of guiding his team to their third league title in as many years.
