You are currently viewing Kevin De Bruyne clarifies discussion with Alderweireld: "Too many long balls"

Afterwards, Kevin De Bruyne did not disguise the Red Devils’ performance. “It wasn’t good,” the midfielder saw. “Especially in the first half. We did not find space due to our way of building up, although it was there. After adjustments were made at halftime, things went a little better.”

Was the weak start perhaps due to stress? “I can’t speak for others, but I didn’t feel it myself,” said KDB. “Of course he came into the team a bit when we were having such a hard time.”

And then the unavoidable question: what was that strong exchange of words with Toby Alderweireld after the opening goal about?

“Football matters”, De Bruyne grinned. “As I said earlier: there was more space than was perhaps said. That was the discussion. We were looking for the long ball too much, while there was indeed room. Well, such a discussion is not a problem.”

“Look, if you are not top-top, you have to try to win the match in a different way. We took important points, but everyone realizes that we have to do better. Including myself.”
