Chelsea winger De Bruyne: English youngsters should move abroad

Chelsea winger Kevin de Bruyne feels English youngsters should move abroad for first team football.

De Bruyne played in Belgium and Germany before moving to Chelsea.

"The Premier League is without a doubt the best but it is very difficult for young guys to get into the league," he told the Daily Star.

"I don't see so many English players playing abroad. The influence of our players who are here is helping us in Belgium.

"Maybe it can help also for the players of England to go abroad.

"The younger players here go to the Championship on loan. Maybe it is better to go to the top league in Germany - that is a really high level.

"There are also a lot of good teams and you can learn there. It is much better to play in Germany than to play in the Championship.

"But I have heard that English people like to stay in England."
