Dad says De Bruyne 'loves everything about Man City'

The father of Kevin de Bruyne says he's happy at Manchester City.

While this season hasn't been as successful as previous campaigns for City and De Bruyne, the player's father Herwig has spoke of how content he is at the club - praising him for taking his game to the top level.

"He loves it," he told talkSPORT. "Everything about it, where he lives, the club, the city – he loves Manchester City."

Herwig said the De Bruyne family were aware of their son's potential, but did not foresee him producing the quality that he has shown for City, pulling the strings in midfield and leading them towards success.

"It's incredible that your son can realise his dream from when he was young and that he can make it, especially in England and in a competition that he loves.

"Off the pitch he is always the quiet one in the back of the group.

"But Kevin on the pitch is at the front of the group and everything is about football.

"We always knew he would play professionally, but we were never sure he was going so high."
