Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne, who has grown into one of the best players in the Premier League over the past few seasons, believes the main reason for his high level of performance is the freedom he is given by Pep Guardiola.

The Belgium international has continued to be the Citizens' creative force this season, scoring 12 goals and registering 19 assists in 39 appearances across all competitions thus far.

In a recent interview, the 29-year-old shared how his role on the pitch has evolved now that he is part of the Premier League giants' senior core.

"I think sometimes players stick a lot to tactics but I think intuition is very important in football," the attacking midfielder told talkSPORT.

"If I see something, I just try it. If it comes off, it's really nice and if it doesn't, it doesn't. I'm never scared to do something which I think is right in the moment.

"Obviously I make mistakes like everybody, but I just try to be free in the way I play football and it makes me very complimentary for other players in our team."

De Bruyne also spoke about the privilege of being seen as an example for young players.

"I feel honoured that people trust me. I think it's my role to help my teammates and the young lads, and with everything that's been going on, I have been doing the talks for the team," he continued.
