The Ginger Pele, one of the most decorated midfielders in soccer history was recently pulled out of a fateful game versus Chelsea in the Champions League final. A tactical genius, one of soccer’s sharpest minds, a disciplined hard worker, and a contender for 2021 player of the year, De Bruyne’s absence obviously had something to do with the fact that the universally desired Champions League trophy had eluded Manchester City’s grasp yet again. And while his greatness is undeniably true, what else do we actually know about Kevin De Bruyne?
He speaks Latin.
It’s a creepy sight when your eleven-year-old child comes up to you and throws you this oddball: “I want to study Latin for two years, then I’ll go to Topsport School and when I’m 18, I will fully focus on my football.” The weirdest part about this bombastic plan? Well, it’s got to be the fact that he actually realized it.
