De Bruyne: Hopefully we can make the season even better!

Kevin De Bruyne is optimistic that City can make the 2022/23 season even better by winning the Treble.

De Bruyne won his second FA Cup since joining City in 2015 following our 2-1 win over Manchester United on Saturday afternoon.  

The historic cup is City’s second piece of silverware this campaign, having lifted the Premier League trophy last month but the Belgian international hopes it will not be City’s last before the summer break.  

“I don’t feel like there’s any pressure,” said De Bruyne when asked about the Treble being within reach for City. 

“We’ve had a great season already and I think we’re going to try and be as ready as best we can be and we’ll go to Istanbul and play another great game. 

“It’s been an incredible season and hopefully we can make it even better.”  

De Bruyne has featured in nine Champions League matches this season, scoring two goals and providing seven assists.  

The 31-year-old scored our vital equaliser in the first leg of our semi-final away match against Real Madrid which put us in a positive position ahead of the second leg which City went on to win 4-0 and secure our place in the final. 

Pep Guardiola’s team will travel to Istanbul next week ahead of the final at the Ataturk Olympic Stadium where they take on Inter on Saturday 10 June, with kick-off scheduled for 20:00 (UK).
