Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Kevin de Bruyne ranked Zidane first, then Modric and Iniesta, as his top 3 best midfielders.
Kevin de Bruyne picks are:
Kevin De Bruyne: “Why Vinicius ahead of Mbappe in my ranking of who is most likely to win Ballon d’Or? Because I don’t know what’s going to happen with him this year. I also think it’s harder for him to win it at PSG. There’s rumours he may go to Madrid, then maybe I’d put him first or something. Erling first with the season he’s had.”
For the BEST Premier League Midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne picks Bruno Fernandes over Odegaard and Maddison: “He’s a creative machine. He takes a lot of risks also. I like it. Bruno has been like this for a long time.”
De Bruyne is, however, reluctant to acknowledge the Zidane talk, telling Sport360: “I don’t know about that.
“It’s nice when people say this kind of [positive] stuff. It means I am doing good – and that’s about it.”
While the modest midfielder is keen to avoid comparing his game to anyone else, he is prepared to acknowledge that lofty standards have been set during his time in Manchester.
De Bruyne added: “Maybe, yes, I am playing my best football, but it’s so difficult to say.
“It depends how you look at football. If you look at my football in general, as a complete player, I probably am.
