The Manchester City superstar is in a happy place as City prepare final details for the UCL Final match. He knows how privileged it is to be here and how much the entire team worked to get to this point. He spoke about that and much more in the pre match press day-

“Obviously, it’s been one of the goals of the club and one of the players to be in the Champions League final and perform on the highest stage in the world,”

“It’s a privilege. Everyone understands the pressure. We understand the magnitude of the occasion

“But at least we can enjoy the game. We can take it with a smile, and you want to perform and show your best.”

The identity of the team is the same but in the different moments we didn’t make too many mistakes,”

“In other years, especially in these types of games, we made one mistake too many against these teams.

“They would go ahead and we couldn’t come back.

“This year, every time we were in a bad moment, we didn’t concede a goal we would have had in last year’s competition. That’s the difference.”

“It will come from a point where we had so many games after each other it would have been too much for the team and himself.

“So, Pep gave us more breathing space and maybe he saw that it was working and responding really well. That’s why people feel relaxed about the situation.”

A calm, relaxed and focused De Bruyne could prove deadly in this match. KDB is a focal point of this City team in attack and if he is on his A gam City will have a great chance of winning.

Closer and closer, we go!
