Pep Guardiola believes Kevin De Bruyne could win the Ballon d’Or this year

Kevin De Bruyne is building a reputation for himself as one of the best assistants in the game, and his manager thinks that could lead him into winning the best player in Europe this season.

De Bruyne was in another inspiring form as he assisted 4 of City’s 5 goals in their 5-1 drubbing f Leicester City on Saturday. This was only 4 of 77 goals he has created since he burst onto the European scene.

The Belgian is one of the early season contenders for PFA Player of the season, and Guardiola thinks he can lay his hand on the bigger price. Although he was quick to say the Belgian needs to prove himself more especially in Europe if he wants to be counted among the likes of Neymar, Lionel Messi, and Christiano Ronaldo.

According to the Catalan: “No doubt. It’s not one game.
“It’s the whole season every three days playing that way. Every three days.
“He knows and everyone knows to be there you have to win titles and titles and titles.”

Manchester City are on course to win the Premier League title again this season after Manchester United fell 16 points behind them in the race for the title. They are also still in the Champions League and Kevin could add some more assists and trophies to his season.
