Thierry Henry has described Kevin De Bruyne as an ‘incredible talent.’
Kevin De Bruyne finished his season in style against Norwich City by providing his 20th assist of the season.
His 20th assist equals Premier League’s record assist set by former Arsenal legend Thierry Henry in 2002-03.
Henry is very much aware of the Belgian international’s brilliance from his time when he was Belgium’s assistant manager.
“He’s an amazing player, it’s just stupid what we are witnessing, and I hope people in football do realise that the boy is just not normal,” Henry declared.
“In the Belgium national team we used to joke about the assists record and I always used to say: ‘You were not far this year,’ and he would always say: ‘I’ll get you one day’.
“Kevin saw me at Vincent Kompany’s testimonial (at the start of the season) and he said: ‘This year, I’ll get you,’ and I said: ‘You will because you are just incredible’ .
“His brain is somewhere else, it’s just ridiculous.
“I came across him (with Belgium) and worked with him and he’s one of those guys you just have to let play because if you start to understand and comprehend what he’s doing, you’re going to have a headache. He’s on another planet”
“He is an incredible player, what he shows us is madness!”
