Lord, why am I so good?

Messi’s followers point to the Barcelona star’s unrivalled dribbling skills, ultimate team play and eye for a beautiful goal.

Both schools of thought have their merits.

But it looks like Premier League golden boy Kevin De Bruyne has thrown his opinion into the ring.

Footage coming out today showed the ‘Ginger Prince’ answering the age old question of who is better?

KDB chooses Messi over Ronaldo. 

Although this might raise a few eyebrows De Bruyne’s performances for Pep Guardiola’s Man City this season, registering two goals and six assists in 11 league games, have had commentators declaring him the best player in the league.

De Bruyne combines a mix of Ronaldo’s power and game dominance with Messi’s ability to spot an assist and ethereal reading of the game.

Pep loves me.

The Belgian has blossomed since his torrid time under Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

A stint at Wolfsburg, including a season with 27 assists in all competitions and winning German Footballer of the Year, made De Bruyne into the player we see today.

Man City splashed £55 million on bringing the creative midfielder to England and after a slow start he is now showing his class.

27 assists? Who me?

27 assists? Who me?

With the way he is playing right now he could reach the heights of Messi and Ronaldo by the end of his career.

Keep working, Kevin.
