Even though Kevin De Bruyne, a playmaker for Manchester City, is one of the best assist makers in the Premier League, the Belgian had to admit that co-writing Drake’s new song “Wick Man” didn’t count as an assist.
Drake’s new song came out on Friday, and one of the writers’ names lists a “K. De Bruyne.” This made football fans think that the Belgium star was planning a different job while he was out with an injury.
The picture that went popular quickly caught the attention of De Bruyne. At first, the 32-year-old played along, but he quickly denied helping the rapper.
In a sarcastic social media post, De Bruyne said, “Drake needed an assist.”
“It’s not me, no jokes!” Still a huge fan!”
De Bruyne is currently healing from surgery on a hamstring injury he got on August 1, the first day of the Premier League season.
City has missed having him in the middle of the pitch, and striker Erling Haaland said on Instagram that Drake is “not alone” in needing an assist.
