Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne joked about Liverpool’s huge Premier League lead.
the Red have a record 25 points ahead of nearest rivals City and need only two more wins in their last nine games to claim their first title since 1990.
High-level football is currently suspended until April 30 due to the coronavirus epidemic, although it is widely expected that this date will be considerably extended.
De Bruyne participated in a live Instagram with fellow Belgian international Borussia Dortmund, midfielder Axel Witsel and Inter Milan striker Romelu Lukaku Tuesday evening.
During the conversation, Witsel said that Dortmund were in a good position to win the title before Bundesliga football was also suspended, the German club four points behind the leader of Bayern Munich having won seven of their eight league matches this year.
“Since January, we have been playing very well,” he said. “We were in a good position to fight for the titles, then we stopped.”
This prompted De Bruyne to joke: “Yes, we (City) were also fighting for the title, we were almost there!
“It’s difficult (to win the title every year). But you try. “
Regarding the current suspensions, he added: “It’s crazy because we don’t know what’s going to happen.
“People ask us what’s going to happen, but we don’t even know.”
City have won the title in the past two years and in 2018/19 Liverpool beat Liverpool in first place with a single point, the Reds winning the highest point total – 97 – in the history of the English elite so as not to win the championship.
