Robbie Savage performs a major u-turn on Kevin De Bruyne (Videos)

Robbie Savage v Kevin De Bruyne

Back in 2015, Robbie Savage made a comment which many Man City fans remember about Kevin De Bruyne.

Appeared on BT Sport, Savage tore into the Belgium playmaker, claiming that De Bruyne is far too overhyped.

In a famous soundbite that now looks incredibly foolish, Savage said: “I wouldn’t pay to watch Kevin De Bruyne.”

Man City u-turn

Over the weekend, after Man City trounced Watford 6-0 at Vicarage Road, Savage performed a complete u-turn about De Bruyne on BT Sports again.

The former Welsh international made the following comments on air:

He’s arguably the best Premier League player at this minute in time, in terms of his creativity, his weight of pass.

I just think he’s outstanding, absolutely outstanding. 

I said a few years ago when they bought him that I wouldn’t pay to watch him. He was on list of Rivaldo, Ronaldinho.

When I said it, it was on a list of all the best players there’s ever been and he was at the bottom of that list.
