De Bruyne reveals his Player of the Year vote went to Salah

De Bruyne has already revealed that Salah got his Player of the Year vote
With the domestic title nearly secure, De Bruyne and the rest of the City squad can now focus fully on their bid to conquer Europe. It's just the way it goes, in life, in football'. In the 10 years I've been playing, nine and a half years have been up and a half-year has been a bit down.
'I really don't care, ' he continued. "I am fine with it as long as no-one gets hurt". "I am very pleased with how I have played and I didn't expect to be this good this season to be honest", he continued.
He added: "I had the option of going to Munich, PSG or staying in Wolfsburg".
With City harbouring similar aspirations to the since-dethroned Londoners, Guardiola needs his most influential player to avoid the mistakes of their predecessors and not taking their position for granted. In both our cases that's true but that's the same for a lot of players.
"Their movement is a joy to watch at times, and as a defender you need to be aware of that, but hopefully we'll be attacking as well and we can push them back into areas where they don't want to go".
When City won 2-1 at Old Trafford in the reverse fixture in December, their exuberant celebrations and loud music in the away dressing-room sparked a tunnel bust-up between the two teams.
Having returned from a season on loan at Werder Bremen, De Bruyne impressed Mourinho enough to be named as a starter in Blues' opening two games of the 2013-14 Premier League season. "It's our way to prepare for games". He is the guy who always runs the most and he is one of the more talented players we have in England in our team. Obviously, the dressing rooms are mostly close to each other but it's not to mock anybody. "If other people don't do it, I don't mind".
"It's clear that City, with the things they have and the heights they have reached this season, their confidence is probably at an outstandingly high level".
He added: "I think when teams are able to make short passes of four or five metres, you lose the risk to lose the ball".
