Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne was named the world’s best attacking midfielder for the year 2020 by ESPN.
De Bruyne beat Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller and United’s Bruno Fernandes to the top spot.
Naming him no.1, ESPN wrote: “Manchester City missed out on the title to Liverpool last season by an 18-point margin, but De Bruyne’s work did not go unnoticed. In 35 Premier League appearances, he set up 20 goals for his teammates, matching the record for assists in a single season held by Arsenal great Thierry Henry”.
“He also scored 13 goals for Pep Guardiola’s side as they ended the season in second place. De Bruyne won’t want to come second again, meaning his motor and creativity will be pivotal to City wrestling the title back from Merseyside”.
De Bruyne was in devastating form throughout the year 2020. He was easily City’s best player throughout the year.
De Bruyne was joined by his City teammates Ederson, Kyle Walker, Aymeric Laporte, Raheem Sterling, Bernardo Silva and Sergio Aguero in their respective positions.
Kevin De Bruyne has started the 2020-21 season the same way he finished the last one. He is out of the blocks quickly and proving to be City’s engine again as they fight to take back their Premier League crown.
