‘The Nations League is unimportant’ – De Bruyne



Yes, We Too Are Too Old to Attack—Vertonghen trolls De Bruyne

Belgium midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne has said he does not see the UEFA Nations League as an important competition.


The Manchester City star claims he would rather not play with the national team so soon after the club season.


De Bruyne arrived at Belgium’s training camp on Monday, May 30 in preparation for their upcoming Nations League matches.


Roberto Martinez’s will be up against Netherlands, Poland and Wales in Group A4 for the next two weeks.


The playmaker said, “Two weeks is too long. Well, as a player we can’t change that much. I’m not exactly looking forward to it.


“The Nations League is unimportant in my eyes. Just glorified friendlies after a long and tough season. I am not looking forward to it.


“Anyway, we can say that we want more rest. Nothing changes anyway. Once on the field we will do what we have to do.”
