    The continent’s elite club competition is the one major reward to have actually avoided the Spaniard in a glittering career that has also included World Cup and European Championship titles with Spain.

    “For me he is one of the best players who has ever played in the Premier League,” stated De Bruyne, who scored two times and notched a record- equalling assist in the campaign- ending thrashing of the Canaries.

    ” You can constantly discuss who is (number) one however when you play with him you can value what he does day-in, day-out. I have actually had fun with him for 5 years– a long time.

    ” We have won a lot together, we play well together. We match each other actually well in different ways.

    “And he’s such a nice guy as well. He is going to be a big miss. It would be great if we could win the Champions League so it could end well for him.”

    Regardless of remaining in ensured second spot, City had no intent of going simple on the bottom side as they tune up for the see of Real.

    Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring prior to De Bruyne curled in a spectacularsecond De Bruyne then established Raheem Sterling for number 3– his 20 th assist of the season, matching the Premier League record of Thierry Henry– prior to concluding the scoring after Riyad Mahrez also struck.

    De Bruyne, 29, stated: “It is good to remain in the rhythm. There is no point slacking. We need to keep going full speed.

    ” Now we have actually got 2 weeks to prepare ourselves completely and we have actually got another final.

    Norwich, whose relegation fate was validated a fortnight ago, wished to end the season with a grow.

    They were regrettable to have an early Onel Hernandez strike prohibited for offside and Teemu Pukki missed a great chance to make it 1-1, however eventually they were swept aside.

    Hernandez is now anticipating a break prior to starting the long fight to go back to the leading flight from the Championship.

    “We’ll come back stronger, take on the Championship and try to return as soon as possible to the Premier League.” @OnelHernandez23 provided us his ideas post-Man City ⬇

    The Cuban stated: “We have actually found out a lot and something particularly– if you do not score your goals, if you are ineffective, you yield each time. That is how it remains in the Premier League.

    ” That’s why it is the very best league in the world, you play the very best teams in the world.

    ” We are, naturally, after this season all dissatisfied. We now have the break and we need to come and find out back.

    “I am happy now we have some holidays first to make our heads free and then we will see how it will be in the Championship. We have to come back stronger.”
