Aston Villa's Jacob Ramsey says Manchester City have a player capable of doing the 'unbelievable'
Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has been hailed by Aston Villa duo Jacob Ramsey and Ezri Konsa, who deemed him the best passer in the Premier League.
The 29-year-old has been with the Citizens since 2015, when he joined from Wolfsburg for a then club record £55million.
Since then, he has developed into one of the best players in world football, winning seven major trophies at the Etihad Stadium.
De Bruyne, who recently penned a new contract until 2025, has made 256 competitive appearances for City, netting 65 goals and registering 105 assists.
For Belgium, meanwhile, he has won 80 caps, scoring 21 goals, and helped the Red Devils finish third in the 2018 World Cup.
Ramsey and Konsa were interviewed by the Premier League Uncut team for their latest YouTube episode, and were asked who they thought was the best passer in PL history.
Both opted for De Bruyne, with Ramsey saying: “His range of passing is unbelievable, I think some of his passes sometimes, people are thinking ‘how’s he seen that?'”
Konsa added: “Last season, at Villa Park, some of the passing he was doing was crazy.
“As soon as he sees the pass, he gives it – I think he just wants his teammates to score, that’s the main goal for him.”
De Bruyne is one of the best players in the world – “exceptional”, in Pep Guardiola’s words – and has been sensational for club and country over the years.
With City remaining in contention for four trophies, he could well take his trophy tally at the Etihad to 11.
And on the international front, Belgium will surely be contenders for the Euros this summer and the World Cup next year.
