De Bruyne’s Wolfsburg future uncertain

De-bruyneDIETER Hecking is confident Kevin de Bruyne will snub interest from Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain to remain at Wolfsburg this season.

The Belgium international scored 10 Bundesliga goals last season and topped the assist charts by some distance with 20. The midfielder played a starring role for the DFB Pokal winners as they beat Bayern Munich in the German Supercup, setting up Nicklas Bendtner for a late equaliser and then burying his spot kick in the penalty shootout.

With City and PSG lurking, De Bruyne has admitted that he is not sure what the future holds, but Hecking believes that winning a second piece of silverware will encourage the 24-year-old to remain at the Volkswagen-Arena for at least another year as they look to challenge Bayern to the league title this year.

We have many interesting players, that is the curse of our success,” the coach told reporters after the win over Pep Guardiola’s men.  “But Kevin noticed again what we can achieve with this team in the next season.  “We don’t want to sell him. I can understand his statements, but I expect him to stay.“

After guiding his team to success in the DFB-Pokal and a second-placed finish in the German top flight, the 50-year-old was delighted to pick up another trophy at the expense of the Bavarian club. “If you can experience a day like Saturday, you know what you’re working for.  “Of course this was just the Supercup, but still it was a wonderful evening of football.”
