De Bruyne Says There’s More To Come

Kevin de Bruyne in spite of notching his 50th assist insists that his best is yet to come and that he is only beginning to find his rhythm.

The Belgian attacker is already on top of the pile when it comes to assists in the Premier League but the Manchester City attacker says he’s still a distance away from his best form.

He took his assists tally to four this term when he set up Aguero for his opener against Bournemouth.

“[The assist] that doesn’t really matter,” he said. “A lot of people talk about that but I just don’t think I played the best game.

“It’s one of those games, August, for me, I’m just trying to find a rhythm and then September is easier.

“I think the first two games we played better, yesterday was more tough, but I think it’s normal when you play against a team that plays 5-4-1, it makes it more tougher, you need to be more patient but in the end you need to win games in different manners and I think that’s what we did.”

De Bruyne’s assist in Manchester City’s 3-1 win over Bournemouth was his 50th in England’s top-flight and saw him break the record of the quickest to reach that milestone, surpassing the record previously set by Mesut Ozil and other legends like Eric Cantona and Chelsea’s Fabregas.

“It’s always nice to have something like that in the books,” he added. “It doesn’t really matter but maybe in 20 years back I can look back and say I accomplished something.

“This one was very lucky but they all count. It makes me happy because I tried to find my team-mates and if they score I get the assist, so it’s like a co-operation, I try to provide them and they score it!”
