Thomas Frank says £54m Kevin De Bruyne is Man City star player

Brentford manager Thomas Frank says Man City have £54m Kevin De Bruyne as their star player in a side studded with elites. Speaking on Sky Sports, Frank was asked about how he would set up his side to stop the forces of the treble-winners, including a player like the Belgian midfield maestro. Owing to this, Thomas gave a brief about how he instructed his men to keep Kevin De Bruyne quiet.

Moreover, Thierry Henry brands Kevin as a ‘clever’ player. He still is the best player in the Manchester City squad. Now, Frank has given an insight about his tactical play to outplay the midfield maestro. He says;

“No, never man-mark him but of course, have an extra eye on him because he’s the key man. Of course, City have four or five top players that you try to close down but we have an extra eye on him.”

Kevin De Bruyne is the ultimate difference

Thomas Frank has rightly said that Kevin is the protagonist of the play for the Sky Blues. Haaland comes close to second. Kevin De Bruyne is among one of the most productive creator of his generation. His insane passing range, ball control, pinpoint crosses, inch-perfect long balls and ability during a 1v1 makes him a lethal and diverse threat to the opposition. In addition, even in a game in which the five-time Premier League winner does not walk away with an assist or two, his overall impact on the game is seismic more often than not.
