Kev can be like Messi

Daily Mirror (Northern Ireland) - - SPORT - BY DAVID MCDON­NELL

KEVIN DE BRUYNE can reach the level of Cris­tiano Ron­aldo and Lionel Messi, ac­cord­ing to Bel­gium boss Roberto Martinez.

De Bruyne, 26, is set to star for Bel­gium in tonight’s friendly against Mex­ico

And Martinez said: “He has a spe­cial con­nec­tion with Pep Guardi­ola, who gets the best out of Kevin.

“He has the po­ten­tial of reach­ing those highs of Messi and Ron­aldo. And there are not many play­ers you could say that about.”
