Kevin De Bruyne Was Absolutely Seething After Being Nutmegged In Less Than 30 Seconds By Professional Freestyler

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne looked absolutely furious about being nutmegged by a professional freestyler in less than 30 seconds.


De Bruyne, who lifted a fourth Premier League title with City, was back in his native Belgium recently for the 'KDB Cup' tournament he runs.

As part of the event, De Bruyne did an activity with freestyler and street panna player Martijn Debbaut but probably ended up regretting it.

The pair showed off their skills and the 30-year-old seemed like he was enjoying himself.

But then Debbaut, who has 371,000 followers on TikTok, made it his mission to complete a panna on one of the very best players in the world.

De Bruyne, wearing his converse, started with the ball but then Debbaut pinched it off him and demonstrated ridiculous close control and lightning quick feet.

He tried extremely hard to keep his legs close but eventually a half rabona flick transitioned in a glorious nutmeg that left De Bruyne stunned.

He shook hands with Debbaut but as he walked away, you could see how irritated De Bruyne was that he'd just be done.

And fans definitely picked up on it:

In other clips posted on Debbaut's TikTok page, De Bruyne did seemed to have a little more fun.

The nutmeg video amassed 3.8 million views on the platform, as well as 311,000 likes.

De Bruyne played 90 minutes for Belgium on Friday as Roberto Martinez's side were thrashed 4-1 at home to the Netherlands in the UEFA Nations League.

After a long and arduous season, the former Chelsea and Wolfsburg man was critical of the international schedule which means he and many other players won't get a proper break before pre-season.

"For me, the Nations League is unimportant. We have to play those matches, but it's a kind of practice campaign," De Bruyne said.

"Everyone has had a very tough season. As soon as we are on the field, we do what we have to do. Then I want to win. Other than that, I don't have much to say about it.

"The outsiders don't understand how a player feels after a season. It doesn't have to be, in the end it won't change anyway. Nor is there any point in saying anything about it. Nothing will change anyway."
