‘What a man’, ‘proper ambassador for the club’ – Man City fans reacts as De Bruyne stepping up his leadership role


Kevin De Bruyne has revealed he hopes his leadership position at Manchester City will help the whole club develop, including the Women’s side and youth teams.

The Belgium international, who has been a revelation for City since signing from Wolfsburg in the summer of 2015, has now committed his long term future to the club in a big announcement.

De Bruyne has become a talismanic presence for City under Pep Guardiola and remains as driven as ever despite all that he has achieved.

The Blues are in the hunt for a historic quadruple this season, with a big-spending outfit desperate to end their Champions League duck, and a man at the heart of their future plans is eager to play a leading role in the delivery of collective improvement.

“I want the team to progress,” Kevin told the official Man City Podcast.

“Even the youth I want to help them, the women’s team – it’s important for this club to promote everything.

“I am in a position to help everybody at this club, and this is my part to play now.

“Since I was made one of the captains, I have progressed in that [leadership] part. I do fairly well. In certain areas, I can still do better.

“That’s why I am here, to help this team and the whole club get better, and that will help me in the end.

“To take a leadership role will help me evolve as a human being and in other aspects of life.”
