KDB on Pep inspiration

Kevin De Bruyne: “Pep and I share a similar mentality. To be fair, he’s even more intense about football than I am. However much mental stress we are under as players, I think he is under twice as much. Because he is not just interested in winning. He wants perfection.”

Kevin De Bruyne: “The first meeting I ever had with Pep, he sat me down and he said, “Kevin, listen. You can be — easily — a top five player in the world. Top five. Easily.” I was shocked. But when Pep said it with so much belief, it changed my whole mentality.”

Kevin De Bruyne: “I felt like I had to prove him right, instead of prove him wrong. Most of the time, football is about negativity and fear. But with Pep, it’s about extreme positivity. He sets goals that are so high that they’re almost impossible to reach.”
