Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola said Kevin de Bruyne could reach the level of Lionel Messi (Barcelona) and Cristiano Ronaldo (Real Madrid), but the Belgian believes that this is completely unattainable.
“It is impossible to be compared to Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, because our positions are completely different. They play much further on the pitch and score ten times more than I do. If you score 10 goals in a season, they score 100. It’s also true that I have other tasks on the pitch, “De Bruyne said in a statement to Het Belang van Limburg.
The Belgian international also addressed the issue of aggression in the field.
“I do not think I’m a target for opponents. Tickets are part of football. I do not cry when I am hit, because football is a contact sport. “
