Speaking to talkSPORT, Man City star Kevin De Bruyne has opened up over potentially taking the captain’s armband on a permanent and official basis – with the Belgian playmaker going on to say he is ‘honoured‘ that many critics support him taking the role. 

De Bruyne, who has been the Sky Blues’ standout performer this campaign, amassing a brilliant 16 assists in the league so far over 2019/2020, is now being touted with the armband following a string of impressive displays.
