Kevin De Bruyne Has Worried Manchester City Fans With Comments About His Future
Kevin De Bruyne has admitted he will consider his Manchester City future if the club's two year ban from European football stands.
City were hit with a two year European ban in February for 'serious breaches' of the Financial Fair Play Rule.
De Bruyne joined City in 2015 and has become one of the world's best midfielders under the tutelage of Pep Guardiola.
The Belgian stated that he trusts the club and that they can get the ban overturned, while also discussing his own future.
"I'm just waiting," De Bruyne told Belgian publication Het Laatste Nieuws.
"The club told us they are going to appeal and they are almost 100% sure they are right. That's why I'm waiting to see what will happen. I trust my team.
"Once the decision is made, I will review everything. Two years would be long, but in the case of one year I might see."
The 28-year-old went on to shower his current side with praise and called them one of the world's best.
"I play for one of the best teams in the world, play in England and in my competitive view, the best competition and I like that," De Bruyne said.

"It remains a challenge to be the best and I need that too."
De Bruyne's development at the Etihad has been helped immensely by Guardiola, who's long term future is also up in the air.
Guardiola's contract expires in 2021 and he's yet to commit to an extension - but it's something that won't define De Bruyne's future.
He added: "I think Pep said he will take his year anyway no matter what. Then his contract ends.
"But I'm not going to let my decision depend on what Pep is doing.
"Of course I have already worked with other trainers and when Pep leaves, I have to continue working with someone else. But I haven't really paid much attention to that for the time being. There are more important things at the moment."
Despite City trailing Liverpool by 25 points, this season has been one of De Bruyne's personal best, scoring eight and assisting 17 in the Premier League.
