Manchester City star Kevin de Bruyne talks about his connection with Erling Haaland.

Manchester City star Kevin de Bruyne speaks about his special relationship with teammate Erling Haaland, with whom they have combined to devastating effect this season. 

The Belgian has had an instant connection with the Norwegian, who only moved to the Premier League at the start of the season, assisting him to score eight goals in the league this season.

What KDB said 

The former Wolfsburg midfielder was speaking in the pre-match press conference ahead of their UEFA Champions League clash against Inter when he was asked if his connection with Haaland was love at first sight.

He replied comically, saying no and that he was still very happy with his wife. However, he acknowledged the chemistry between himself and the Norwegian.

Although he claimed to be unable to explain their connection, he pointed out how they clicked well. He also praised the former Salzburg striker's goal-scoring prowess and his impact on the team, putting them on course for a historic treble with his goals.   

"No, I'm happy with my wife! I don't know,” he replied to the question on the connection with Haaland being love at first sight.

“It's something I can't explain, sometimes you have a feeling with a player and you just understand what he wants.

“We just clicked really well and he just started scoring at an incredible rate and he's settled with the team, he's been important to us in different ways.”

Meanwhile, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has informed other managers how to be successful.
