Manchester City star De Bruyne has passed his UEFA A coaching licence course.
The Belgian FA embarked on a unique project in 2019 when they announced that 19 players, including De Bruyne, would be doing their UEFA A and B licences while on international duty.
De Bruyne, it was reported on Tuesday, is one of 10 players to have completed the courses and as such has been awarded his A licence.
It emerged this season that De Bruyne was undertaking sessions for youth sides in the Manchester City academy, up to the U16s.
That appears to have all contributed to De Bruyne being awarded the second highest coaching badge, after the UEFA Pro licence.
