Not Messi, Pep? Man City boss: De Bruyne best in world

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has declared Kevin de Bruyne the best midfielder in the world.

The Belgium international was again impressive for victory over champions Liverpool on Thursday.

Guardiola, who worked with Lionel Messi at Barcelona, said, “Kevin is very good.

"He has something unique. He moves around the field very well and sees it well. In addition, Kevin has a character - he scored 4 penalties in a row after we could not score from the spot for a long time.

"De Bruyne is the best midfielder in the world right now, but he can get even better and knows how to do it."
