Manchester City Star reacts to Messi, Ronaldo comparisons City Star reacts to Messi, Ronaldo comparisons

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne ‘really doesn’t care’ about being compared to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.Kevin De Bruyne has dismissed comparisons to Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, saying that individual modern footballers are too often measured up against each other.

The Manchester City midfielder was praised by his international manager, Belgium boss Roberto Martinez, who said De Bruyne should be considered alongside the world’s best players.

However De Bruyne is not interested in being compared to Ballon d’Or winners, and is more concerned by winning team trophies than he is in individual honours.

De Bruyne told Sky Sports News: ‘I don’t care. I really don’t care. People compare too many players with each other, you have too many good players in the world.

In the end, I will only win individual awards if I win something with City.’I try to play the way I am playing at the moment and obviously the way we are playing is very positive and for us it’s nice. Everybody is in the same spirit. We want to play the football that we play.’

De Bruyne also played down comparisons between City this season and the Arsenal ‘Invincibles’ of 2004, who went through the 38-game Premier League season unbeaten. City have started their league campaign with 10 wins and a draw from 11 fixtures, but De Bruyne is cool on the prospect of staying unbeaten.

He said: ‘I don’t think that will be possible because I think you have so many games and too many important games.’The power of the Premier League means every team has a lot of money and every team has a lot of quality players, so I think one day or another you will face a team who find a system to beat you, or they have a better day.’

De Bruyne has been essential to City’s brilliant start, scoring three and assisting nine goals in 16 games.
