Manchester City’s Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne becomes another big voice among professionals to speak out about the proposed European Super League.

On Sunday, April 18, 2021, the football world was shocked to hear of advanced plans of the formation of a breakaway Super League in Europe.

Through a statement, it was revealed Twelve of Europe’s leading football clubs had agreed to establish a brand new competition, a Super League, controlled by its club-owners.

Six teams from England, three from Spain and three from Italy have reportedly agreed to take part in this proposed new league, with the anticipation that more clubs will join.

Man City is one of them. However, new reports suggest the club will soon announce intentions to withdraw from the Super League.

De Bruyne had this to say about the proposed European Super League:

“This man comes out of a little town out of Belgium dreaming of playing at the highest stage possible. I’ve represented Belgium, German and English league. And also proudly represented my country.

I have worked and competed against everybody trying to win the ultimate. But the most important word in this is competing.

With all events that have been happening the last few days maybe this is a good moment for everybody to come together and try the work for a solution.

We know this is a big business and I know I am part of this business. But still, I am a little boy who just loves to play football. It’s not about a certain entity, in this case, it’s about football all over the whole world.

Let’s keep inspiring the next generation of footballers and keep the fans dreaming.”
