Stats why Kev’s the best
LOVE the story about Kevin De
Bruyne – before agreeing an extension to his contract – hiring a team of data analysts to study Manchester City’s chances of continued success.
A club owned by a man of limitless wealth, way ahead at the top of the Premier League, a decent shot at winning the Quadruple, an average squad age of 26.1, hot
favourites to sign Erling Haaland, and Pep Guardiola happy? Not sure it needs a team of data analysts to convince you that City are going to be at the business end of things for a while.
Nor to convince a player such as De Bruyne (above) – who will be 30 in a few months’ time – that signing a fouryear deal worth £300,000 a week is not a bad idea.
