Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne is critical of the obsession with statistics in today’s football.
De Bruyne says he isn’t interested in his match-to-match stats.
“I think that for me personally, the statistics are a bit too much. Especially for a midfielder where you do a lot of good things that are not reflected by the statistics,” he said.
“I know many people use them to compare people, but I do not care. However, they are a part of life now.
“It was completely different 10-15 years ago, where everything was based on what you saw with your eye and everyone used the eye test and that was it.”
