Jamie Carragher believes Kevin De Bruyne is the greatest Premier League player of all time

The English Premier League is one of the most competitive football leagues in the world. Several English clubs have ruled the league, and the same is done by players. There are often debates regarding the best players in the league. Players like John Terry, Frank Lampard, and Thierry Henry pop into our minds. But the former footballer Jamie Carragher believes Kevin De Bruyne stands at the top of the list.

Jamie Carragher said:

“Kevin De Bruyne is better than all three (Cantona, Zola, and Bergkamp).”

Here is the complete statement:

“When you think of the greatest foreign players to play in the Premier League, we always use the same names. You go back to Cantona, Zola, and Bergkamp. Those three are absolute legendary figures in the Premier League and at their clubs.”

“But Kevin De Bruyne is better than all three of them. He is one of the greatest Premier League players of all time.”

Is Kevin De Bruyne one of the greatest Premier League players?

The Belgian footballer made his Premier League debut with Chelsea in 2012. But due to a star-studded lineup, he warmed the bench and didn’t get many chances. Later, he was transferred to Manchester City in 2015. At that time, no one knew the havoc he would create in the league.

De Bruyne has made over 250 appearances in the Premier League. He has scored over 60 goals and provided 109 assists. Not only that, but he has also won five Premier League titles and is one of the main contributors to all these successful campaigns.

Undoubtedly, De Bruyne is one of the greatest Premier League players.
