Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne continues to sparkle for both club and country after a tough spell with injuries last season.
Is Kevin De Bruyne the best footballer in the Premier League right now?
People quickly forget how prolific De Bruyne can be. The 28-year-old has earned double-digits for goals and assists every season since 2012/13. Now he's averaging a contribution every 49 minutes this season.
There’s a reason De Bruyne is the fifth-highest rated player on Fifa 2020.
Said Belgian boss Robert Martinez, “I think he's in the best moment of his career. There's no other midfield player that can create space, a playmaker that can execute the passes that he does. It's a joy to see him fitting into the group.”
When asked if he thinks he's the best midfielder in the world, De Bruyne responded: “Fortunately I don't have to judge that.”
“I just have to play well. I'm just content. I'm feeling good. I have already played many matches and am starting to come into my rhythm. That is important, because there are still many games to play.”
