Man City star De Bruyne: I was a Liverpool supporter

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has revealed he was a boyhood fan of Liverpool.

The Belgian's City team are one point ahead of Liverpool on top of the Premier League table.

"I was a Liverpool fan. My family that live in England were all Liverpool supporters so I was, too," De Bruyne told Match of the Day Magazine.

"I loved Michael Owen, because I was really small like him and quick, too. I compared myself to him at the time. I liked [Zinedine] Zidane and Ronaldinho too – those really skilful players."
