Louis Van Gaal speaks on Kevin De Bruyne winning Ballon d'Or

Despite believing Kevin de Bruyne should win the Ballon d’Or, Louis van Gaal has stated that he has no chance of winning it.

De Bruyne was instrumental in City’s Premier League title win this season, and there’s no doubt that he’s developed into one of the best players in the world in recent years.

After being nominated for the PFA Players’ Player of the Year award, the Belgian could earn some individual accolades in the coming months to add to his league winner’s honors.

After France Football changed the award to name the best player in the world, there’s a chance he’ll win the Ballon d’Or in October.

However, former Manchester United boss Van Gaal believes the City star won’t ever pick up the award, despite believing that he should win it.

“Kevin De Bruyne, of course. For me, that’s the winner of the Ballon d’Or,” the Netherlands coach said ahead of his team’s match against Belgium.

“But he won’t be chosen any time soon.

“They always pick attackers. In that respect, Noa Lang has a better chance than De Bruyne (laughs).”
