Kevin De Bruyne Has Been Demoted From His Role As Man City's Vice Captain by Christiansen(m): 4:07pm On Sep 17, 2021
Kevin De Bruyne demoted from role as Man City's vice captain after players' vote
De Bruyne is now fourth choice as the Premier League champions' captain, with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola allowing his players to choose their own skipper through a vote

Kevin De Bruyne has dropped to fourth choice as Manchester City captain following a vote by Pep Guardiola's players.

De Bruyne was vice-captain for the 2020/21 season, and often wore the armband with club skipper Fernandinho not always a first-team starter.

City boss Guardiola has allowed his players and staff to choose their captain since club legend Vincent Kompany departed two years ago.

And after the latest vote, Ilkay Gundogan is now vice-captain to Fernandinho, ahead of Ruben Dias, who is third choice and wore the armband against RB Leipzig in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

That means De Bruyne is now fourth choice, according to The Sun.


The Belgian playmaker has been a huge player for City since joining from Wolfsburg for £68.4million in 2015, having helped to club to three Premier League titles, five League Cups and one FA Cup.

But two of his last three campaigns have been disrupted by injuries, while Gundogan and Dias having been among City's standout players last season.

[quote] He was fine form during the 6-3 win over Leipzig, firing in the delivery that led to Nordi Mukiele's calamitous own goal that doubled City's lead.

Raheem Sterling was also not voted into City's leadership group, having been third choice last season.
Sterling lost his left-wing spot to Phil Foden during the second half of the campaign, although he returned to the starting line-up for the Champions League final defeat to Chelsea.

The 26-year-old has since starred for England in Euro 2020 and the recent World Cup qualifiers, and has been involved in every City game so far this season - although has only made one start.

This is a wrong move by Pep. It will bring disharmony to the dressing room.
Pep should pick his choices to fill these positions.

Pray for Nigeria that God should give us His own leader in Nigeria come 2021 election and beyond. it is high time to stop trusting human. thanks be to God for God prove himself to us. Nigeria trusted human Buhari and we were seriously dealt with. killing of fellow human is not regarded as a serious sin, it is normal, no food, it is correct. kill cow, you are in trouble.History will never forget if we survive it. So let ask God for forgiveness first and ask him to give us our leader. Nigerian may not go to pole before God do it. God will show us mercy and answer our prayer. He will deliver us from fellow human that are deceiving us.
Amen.

De Bruyne has been battling with injuries this days so we need a consistent player to be our vice captain with respect to Kevin he is a skipper and a leader on the pitch whether captain or no captain.

This is a clear case of bad belle in the Manchester City dressing room.

He is the top performer in the squad and no case can be made to validate his demotion on performance basis.

For the unitiated, De Bruyne negotiated his new contract himself without any agents or the input of a lawyer and his new deal is the biggest in the history of the Premier league.



Human are naturally preconditioned to hate on their betters.

If true than Pep just signed the downfall of his team with his own hands. Sterling and Debryne are the two oldest players besides Fenandinho. If Fenandinho could keep his place as Captain due to seniority and performance then I see wayo in the so-called voting. How do I have a feeling that Debryne and Sterling clashed with Guardiola after the Champions League finals?

Coaches are known to appoint their Captains and Vice without sending anyone. Anyway wetin concern me.
