“Money is important, but the most important thing for me is to play football, and then I’m happy. OK, you want to earn a good amount of money to be secure, but if I chose money, I would go to Russia and already have a lot more. I like to play football, and that is it.”

“When you score, it is obviously a great feeling, but to give a great pass is also something special for me. I think it is also very under-rated sometimes, what we do.”

“I am not somebody who spends a lot of money in my life. I keep it for later when I want to do something – for vacations – because we don’t have a lot of time off.”

“I’m not the most open player; I’m not the biggest clown. I just like going into the dressing room easy.”

“If I see someone I think is in a better position than me, it is better for me to give the ball. Now I shoot more at goal. When I was young, they sometimes said to me, ‘You need to shoot more. You try to give it too much.’ It is something that I learned. To try to take the best option.”

“People are looking a lot at statistics and all these things, but in the end, I don’t really care. If we can win more games than last year where I score less, I will be really happy. And maybe if we can win a few titles, that’s the bonus.”

“Everyone needs to be in position to create the openings we have. We like to play a lot where you pass the ball forward and it comes back, because it makes it easier for us to attack, because the midfielders have to turn round.”

“There’s a lot of money coming in, and so a lot of good players are going to each team, so every game is a fight, but on the other hand, it’s good to get a good, competitive league”

“In the league, if you have a bad spell, then you are running behind.”

“I don’t agree that we have to win the Champions League to be a success.”

“I try to look up as quickly as possible, try to read the situation, but football is so quick, it’s just a split-second, and then you decide.”

Kevin De Bruyne, a player who was famous since he was a kid and always showing his best performance in every match.
