Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola visits Drongen, the birthplace of Kevin De Bruyne


Pep Guardiola is currently in Drongen, Belgium, the birthplace of his Manchester City midfield maestro Kevin De Bruyne.

The Catalan has been planning this trip for a while, after accepting an invitation to attend the KDB Cup, a youth tournament supported by Kevin De Bruyne.

Always a man of his word, Pep has arrived in the small region, which has a population of less than 13,000 people.

Yesterday, Guardiola was also a guest in Tubize at the training complex of the Belgian national team and today headed to Drongen, where he has mingled with fans and plans to meet De Bruyne at some point.

The KDB Cup is an under-15s tournament and will feature a Manchester City side, while the likes of Chelsea, Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund, Anderlecht and Zenit St Petersburg are also scheduled to be involved.

“We sent an invitation to Guardiola because Manchester City will take part for the first time this year,” Paul Naudts, the event organiser, said in March. “To our great surprise, Guardiola himself replied that he absolutely did not want to miss the event.”

And Pep is now in town to watch some of the stars of tomorrow in action.
