Man City ace Kevin de Bruyne named the second-best football player in the world.
Football website Goal published a list of the top 50 players on the planet which features 25 male and 25 female footballers based on their performance in the 2019/20 season.
Kevin de Bruyne who also won the UEFA Midfielder of the Year award is the second-highest ranked footballer only after Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.

“Nobody could have done more than the silky-skilled attacking midfielder to take City where they want to go,” said Goal.
“Liverpool may have been crowned champions of England, but De Bruyne was the best player in the Premier League last season, with the 29-year-old not only scoring 13 goals but also racking up a record-equalling 20 assists.
“City may have missed out on Messi during the summer break, but as long as De Bruyne remains fit, Pep Guardiola’s side can continue to dream of finally ending their quest for European glory this term.”
