Man City manager Pep Guardiola reveals Kevin De Bruyne reaction to awards snub
Updated: 5 May 2018
Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola insists Kevin De Bruyne hasn’t been affected by missing out on the PFA Players’ Player of the Year and FWA Footballer of the Year awards.
De Bruyne was beaten to both individual accolades by Liverpool’s Mo Salah, who is one goal away from setting a Premier League record for most goals in a 38-game season after a superb debut campaign on Merseyside.
De Bruyne, 26, has stood out for City in their run to the title and Guardiola believes a league winner’s medal is all that really matters to the Belgium international.
“We didn’t speak about that. I didn’t feel it when I saw him,” Guardiola said when asked if De Bruyne had been affected by the snub. “Nothing changes the fact that Kevin was amazing. He is a champion.
“I think he will be remembered in his life, in the season 2017-18, we won the Premier League and he was fundamental to achieve that and I think that is what will make him proud the most.
“He can say, ‘in my life, at least once, I was part of the best team in England’ and that’s the biggest prize with the most value for him.”
