The smartest footballer in the world according to the French star

Thierry Henry, the former star of the French national team and the Arsenal and Barcelona clubs, believes that Kevin De Bruyne is one of the best midfielders in the history of football.

De Bruyne scored with a defiant strike as Manchester City drew with Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-finals on Tuesday night as the Citizens avoided defeat at the Santiago Bernabeu.

After this match, Henry praised City’s Belgian star and compared him to Xavi and Iniesta, his former teammates in the Barcelona team.

The former French star, speaking as an expert on the American CBS Champions League program, said of De Bruyne: Kevin’s mind is the best I’ve ever seen. He is the smartest player I have ever seen in my life.

Henry has had a history of working with De Bruyne in the Belgian national team for 6 years. The former French star was Roberto Martinez’s assistant in the Red Devils and reached third place in the 2018 World Cup in Russia with the golden generation of Belgian football.

Manchester City and Real Madrid will play the second leg of the Champions League semi-final next Wednesday at Etihad Stadium in Manchester.
