Kevin De Bruyne (31-Manchester City) has praised Manchester City’s unity.
City will play the final of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) 2022-2023 season at the Atatürk Olympic Stadium in Istanbul, Turkey, on April 11 at 4:00 a.m. ET. It will be City’s second appearance in the final in two years after the 2020-2021 season. Having won the English Premier League (EPL) and the English Football Association (FA) Cup, City will be looking to win their first ever UCL title and complete the ‘treble’.
This season, City won both the league and the UCL, led by the ‘monster’ Elling Holland and ‘special assistant’ De Bruyne. They won the EPL title for the ninth time in their history, establishing the Man City dynasty, and reached the UCL final without losing a game from the group stage.
Ahead of the UCL final, De Bruyne spoke to Sky Sports on Monday about his eight years at City. “There have been personal changes, but the team hasn’t changed. The team spirit at City has always been the same since I arrived. It’s always united and it’s great.”
“I don’t think there are any superstars at Man City. Everyone is willing to do their job,” he said, praising the team’s unity. “There’s a lot of passion to win trophies even after you’ve achieved everything,” he added.토토사이트
De Bruyne’s words were echoed by most of City’s players this season. Of course, Holland, the EPL’s top scorer, stood out: his 36 league goals accounted for 38% of the team’s goals (94). But Holland wasn’t the only standout. When Holland was silent or out of action, the likes of Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva, and Phil Foden stepped up to the plate, scoring at key moments. De Bruyne also played a big part in City’s league title with 16 assists (seven goals).
