Manchester City playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne, has said he has no sympathy for Liverpool, after they pipped them to the Premier League title by just a point, because they were the better team in the end..”
Liverpool lost just one match all season to finish on 97 points, the highest total ever by a runner-up.
It was a number that would have been enough to win the title in all-but three Premier League seasons.
“It’s a remarkable effort [from Liverpool], 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. I know how they feel, because you’re going to feel disappointed. We’d feel the same if it happened to us. But we’re still competitors. We want to win as much as they do, but I can understand the feelings they have.
“It’s the general view of athletes. You feel compassionate with other teams, but in the end the most important thing is, if you play an individual sport, it’s yourself, and when it’s your team, it’s your team. It’s been a great battle. But to feel ‘sorry’ for them is maybe going a little too far,” De Bruyne told reporters ahead of their FA Cup final against Watford.
