‘You take it’: £55m star sends cold message to Liverpool

Liverpool finished the Premier League season with only one defeat to their name, the lowest total for any club in the top flight of English football this campaign.

The Reds were battling very hard with champions Manchester City for the league title all season and in the end, what separated the two sides was a mere point.

Manchester City’s players were guilty of making a few arrogant remarks here and there during the course of the campaign and after winning the title again, the talking has not ended from Pep Guardiola’s side.

Kevin De Bruyne, who moved to the Etihad in a £55m deal, once again played a part in City’s title success, even though he was troubled by injuries this time for large chunks of the season.

The Belgium star featured in the FA Cup final on Saturday as Guardiola’s men sealed a domestic treble of trophies by thrashing a woeful Watford side at Wembley stadium.

After being asked about whether he felt any sympathy for Liverpool over losing the title by just one point, De Bruyne’s response was a cold one, suggesting that he simply did not care.

De Bruyne told Sky Sports: “It’s a remarkable effort, but it means that we were just better than them in the end.

“I don’t feel sorry for them because I don’t think they’d feel sorry for us. I don’t think anybody felt sorry about the way we went out of the Champions League. You take it.”
