Man City ace De Bruyne: I'm not Zizou

Manchester City ace Kevin de Bruyne is keen to duck comparisons with Zinedine Zidane.

The Belgium international is been outstanding for City, despite their struggles this season, and drawn comparisons with Zidane at his best.

Asked about the claims, De Bruyne was eager to play it down.

"I don't know if it's justified," said the midfielder.

"It's good when people say that kind of positive thing. It means I'm doing a good job, but that's it."
