Kevin De Bruyne is happy with the performance. Despite a rocky start, Manchester City really turned it on in the second half and did enough to win. Speaking after the match, the Belgian star spoke about the team’s mentality, how they were patient and much more.

Let’s dive in-

“We wanted to go forward too quickly and that’s not the way we are set up.

“Second half we did really well, we tried to find the spaces more patiently.

“I think the second half was much better, I think we put them under pressure.

“They’re a really tough team to play against and I think the progression we made as a team was good.”

“It’s set up in the perfect position and is so difficult for the keeper because he always expects someone to touch it,”

“It was great for us, and I think we kept going and obviously with the second goal with Riyad, it’s good for us but there’s still a game to go so we have to concentrate on that.”

“The quality at this stage, we know how good they are so you have to set your mind that you are going to have to run hard and work hard for the team.

“But we know we also have quality to play good against them and that’s going to happen in the second game also.”

Some great stuff from De Bruyne. It definitely was a two halves type of match and the most important thing is City got the result away in Paris.
