Written by Koen Van Uytvange, Pieter-Jan Calcoen and Yanko Beeckman for Nieuwsblad:

“Who is the best midfielder in the world?” Ask that question in Belgium and the answer is always Kevin De Bruyne. He is indispensable for both Manchester City and the Red Devils. Yet as a child he spent five days on an internship at Arsenal, while his favourite club was Liverpool. A bed cover, a tracksuit, a photo album and a shirt of his great hero Michael Owen: De Bruyne had it all. He also had a strong character. If things don't go the way he wants, for example at the last World Cup against Canada, he openly gets irritated. De Bruyne knew what he wanted to be in his teenage years. At a friend's house he was only allowed to play football in the garden with a plastic ball to protect the flowers, but De Bruyne asked for a leather one. That was OK with his friend’s father, on the condition that he only play with his inferior left foot. This is one of the reasons why Belgium’s playmaker is so two-footed.
