In addition to matching Thierry Henry’s Premier attendance record, the Belgian was shown off with two goals this Sunday against Norwich.
Pep Guardiola was amazed with the presentation of Kevin De Bruyne this Sunday before Norwich. The Belgian footballer not only obtained an assistance that served to equal the record of Thierry Henry 20 in the same campaign Premier League, but it was dispatched with two right goals.
“We know the assists he gets and the quality he has to do them, but we need his goals,” Guardiola said at the post-game press conference. The Belgian finished with 13 goals this season in the English domestic tournament. “Today he scored two brilliant goals. Of course, the first was special.”
On the record for assists in a campaign that De Bruyne achieved, Pep commented: “We tell them, play simple, play as you know. Do not focus too much on achieving it because you will come alone. He made an assist, but he could have easily broken the record. Now He is going to share it with Titi Henry. He played very well. “
De Bruyne was not the only City player to earn a distinction this season in the Premier: Ederson’s 16th undefeated hurdle earned the Brazilian the Golden Glove.
“He is very nice, but I think he deserves it today because he made two incredible saves. Without him it would not be possible. He had a very good season and he deserves what he has done. We are very happy for this award,” Pep said of the Brazilian. .
Finally, Guardiola had time to dedicate a few words to David Silva, who received a standing ovation after playing his last Premier match with the Citizens.
“It was the smallest standing ovation of all time,” Pep joked. He added: “He will return to receive the standing ovation he deserves from our fans. I have a feeling they want to do it. The players and staff showed their gratitude and honor for these incredible 10 years he has done at this club.” .
