Man City news: Kevin De Bruyne hails his 'best yet' title success with Citizens

Kevin De Bruyne believes his 2021/22 title success is the most satisfying of the four he has won with Manchester City.

Kevin De Bruyne believes this season's Premier League title is the best he has ever won with the club.

Man City made it four titles in five years after they came back from two goals down to beat Aston Villa on the final day.

That result held off the challenge of a relentless Liverpool side, with the Reds winning both domestic cups and set to contest the Champions League final next week too.

De Bruyne was once again a key component for Man City this season, and that came after a tough start with injury. For that reason, he considers this title a very special one personally.

"For me, to be honest, with how I felt at the beginning of the year, this title is by far the best one out of the four," De Bruyne said.

"I came back with a lot of pain in my ankle and it took me two to three months to come back.

"I had a tough time physically and mentally and I admit that. So, for me, this is so sweet, the way I came back this season is amazing. I am very happy and I am so proud."

City briefly looked like they had blown the title race at home to Villa, but three goals in five minutes secured a memorable climax to the season.

"I think it is special because of the way we have had to do it against a team like Liverpool. They push us so much to the limit.

"They don't make it easy because they get 90-95 points every year, so we have to do this every single time. It is hard and it is emotional.

"Obviously there was a little moment of doubt (at 2-0) but then it was all or nothing, just all-out attack.

"I don't think Aston Villa knew what was coming and we were just attacking and attacking.

"We went and we showed that we can score and it makes it even better now."
