Man City star De Bruyne: I thought Sterling was a d***head!

Kevin De Bruyne has revealed he held preconceptions before meeting Manchester City teammate Raheem Sterling.

Both players arrived at the Etihad Stadium in the summer following the 2014-15.

"Before I came to Manchester City, I didn't really know what to make of this Raheem Sterling guy," De Bruyne told the Player's Tribune.

"I had never met him, and from what I'd read about him, I thought he was going to be a very different character.

"I didn't think he'd be a bad guy, really. But the tabloids were always claiming that he was arrogant. So I guess I thought he'd be … what do the English call it? A bit of a d*******, maybe?

"Over time, I got closer to Raheem, because our sons were born around the same time, so they would always play together. He couldn't be more different from what the tabloids were saying.

"This is the real truth: Raheem is one of the nicest, most humble guys I've met in football."
