Guardiola says Kevin De Bruyne is no longer Man City’s solution

Pep Guardiola has said that he may sit Kevin De Bruyne during Manchester City games because he wants more players to fight for spots in the penalty area.

Last week, De Bruyne didn’t play in the game against Tottenham. After the game, Guardiola said that Julian Alvarez was chosen to replace him because of this. Alvarez was replaced by De Bruyne in the starting lineup for the game against Wolves. When Erling Haaland scored City’s first goal, he got a great pass from him that changed the game right away.

With his 12th assist in the league so far this season, De Bruyne moved closer to his own record of 20 assists in a single season. Pep Guardiola said after the game that, depending on the situation, he might take Kevin de Bruyne out of the game again.

“We’ve been together for seven years, so we’re very familiar with each other. Even though I know when Kevin is ready most of the time, there are times when he is not.

“There are many games to choose from. In other cases, that position needs a different kind of player. When we need more people in the boxes, Kevin sometimes has trouble getting his work done.”
