Man City star De Bruyne brands Mourinho's Man Utd 'long ball'

Manchester City ace Kevin de Bruyne has dubbed Manchester United as "long ball".

De Bruyne was outstanding for City in Saturday's derby triumph.

"We want to dominate with the ball and United will play very physically, with long balls. This is a completely different football, but each has its own style," argued the Belgian.

"For us, to play this way is definitely better."

De Bruyne added: "I think our style is a better fit for me of course."
