“I The old man in this gameKDB said afterwards. I now know how it works. “
Which De Bruyne wanted to say is that it is no longer a surprise that his coach, Pep Guardiola, has already dared to rotate.
Certainly not with the crucial Champions League match against RB Leizpig coming up.
In the first leg, City were stuck in a 1-1 draw, so qualification to the quarter-finals in Manchester must be won.
“They’re a solid team,” KDB praised on Autopilot. “They bring a lot of energy and they did well against us last year. But to win the Champions League you have to beat teams like this.”

De Bruyne sighed: “I know we will have this question as long as we don’t win the title.” “Although it does not bother me.”
“For people, winning is only important, but I think we did really well. There were just certain moments like against Real Madrid and Tottenham… Well, if I never win the Champions League, I won’t regret it. I’m not wired like that.”
“Subtly charming internet specialist. Avid writer. Friendly alcohol guru. Music ninja. Devoted social media fanatic.”
