The Spaniard is known for his meticulousness in preparing for opposing teams and De Bruyne has added that there is an enormous emphasis placed on tiny details off the pitch as well as making sure things on the park are well taken care of.
Regarding Guardiola's early rein at City, De Bruyne told Sky Sports:"Everything needs time, we have the same with Belgium (and new coach Roberto Martinez).
"It takes time in training for Pep to get what he wants tactically, but it's really nice and you see the spaces opening up, then you know why you're doing it.
"We want to try and dominate the game but in England you will never do that for a full 90 minutes. We try to do that. It's very positive the way we play.
"People see a lot of differences, and we are doing really well at the moment.
"[Pep] is concerned about everything, every detail and you have to be on the edge as a player.
"If the manager asks for something on or off the pitch, you just need to adjust to what he wants."
