Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has said he is motivated to become the best player in the world.

The Belgium international has been out since the beginning of the season after sustaining a hamstring injury, but is in his recovery process already.

De Bruyne has said: “I want to be the best. It just doesn’t stop. I want to be on the best team, I want to be the best player in the world. I still have the motivation every day.

“Even though I have been out for four months, I have tried to find ways to change myself as a player so that I can still do what I did before.

“I’m sure Il be fine when I’m back on the pitch. I just hope that can keep playing good football and that’s good enough.”
