De Bruyne: Premier League Is Best In The World

share on:

Kevin De Bruyne is looking forward to returning to the EPL, which he has termed the best league in the world.

De Bruyne completed a move to the EPL after joining City on a six-year deal worth £55 million.

The Belgium international’s first stint in the EPL came with Chelsea, but he couldn’t get into the first team.

He is now relishing the opportunity to feature for City at the Etihad.

“I think the Premier League is probably the best league in the world,” he told the club’s official website. “After it, I think it would probably be Germany. I had a great time in Germany, I had a successful one and a half years at Wolfsburg, where we won a few titles.

“It’s a new challenge to be better as a player and hopefully I can do well.”

He added: “I think playing with the likes of Raheem Sterling, David Silva and Sergio Aguero is the best thing you can have as a player.

“I want to reach the highest level possible and the most important thing is that we can be happy and maybe have some titles. That’s the most important thing for the club, the players and the fans of course.”

De Bruyne also admitted that the drawn out saga of his transfer had an effect on him, but said that he remained professional as he waited for the move to materialise.

“I think in the last few weeks there has been a lot of press, also in Germany, but I still kept on playing and training,” added the midfielder.

“I stayed professional at Wolfsburg and we were just waiting for everything to fall into place.

“Now I can just play football again. All that stuff stays in your head and it’s not that easy to be at 100 per cent and to play at a good level.”
