Juventus great Alex Del Piero admits he's a fan of Kevin de Bruyne.
Del Piero believes Manchester City attacker De Bruyne is the one player to challenge the domination of the game's usual suspects.
He told Sky Italia: "In addition to sacred monsters like Neymar, (Cristiano) Ronaldo and (Leo) Messi, I really like De Bruyne, very much indeed.
"I put the four of them in front of everyone."
Of the toughest players he faced during his career, Del Piero also stated: "The best? One of those that I have faced and he has not helped me score (laughs). I met many, even someone like (Franco) Baresi ... I must say that (Marcel) Desailly was huge, I never knew how to deal with it."
