Kevin De Bruyne Believes His Teammate Is Very Underrated

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has hailed the contribution of David Silva, who has been the unsung hero in the Citizens’ cruise to the Premier League title this term. The likes of De Bruyne and Sergio Aguero have been earning plaudits for their performances over the course of the season, but the former believes that Silva has been equally influential, and he is probably ‘very underrated’.

In a report covered by Omnisport, De Bruyne said: “The thing is we don't have competition. I'd prefer it if he scores even more, it helps us. But everybody is doing their part. One day it will be me, on another day it will be David. Obviously, I'm very satisfied with the way I'm playing, I feel I'm playing really well. But I don't need to score or give assists, I just need to do my thing to help us win games and, in the end, I will be very happy. David is unbelievable to play alongside, he's very underrated, and that means a lot considering his standards.”
