Kevin De Bruyne’s weak feet are truly better than most players’ strong feet, and he’s not even left-footed.
On Wednesday night, the Belgian magician scored four goals, including a weak foot hat-trick in the 17th minute of the first half, against Wolverhampton at Molyneux.
On the 7th minute, De Bruyne was sent behind by Bernardo Silva and beat Jose Sa to take City 1-0 with a low finish.
He regained City’s lead in the 16th minute after compatriot Leander Dendoncker leveled the problem on the side of Bruno Lage.
De Bruyne completed in stunning style the third fastest hat-trick in Premier League history with an unstoppable effort nailed to the time mark to the 4th right past Sa.
He scored nearly a fifth, scoring another left-footed strike towards the post in the second half.
De Bruyne mostly uses his right foot, but is equally good with his left foot. In fact, many of the 30’s best goals actually came from his inferior feet.
After last night’s masterclass, someone edited De Bruyne’s world of weak feet and the quality of the goals was next level.
Having played left-footed finals against Chelsea, Leicester, Tottenham, Arsenal, Borussia Monchengladbach, Liverpool, Manchester United, Burnley, Sevilla and Denmark, Bruiner has a sizable catalog.
He hits the ball so neatly that you can be forgiven for thinking it’s his favorite foot. Practice truly makes perfect.
According to Belgian journalist Kristof Terreur, De Bruyne was banned from using natural feet by a neighbor after destroying pots and flowers in her garden as a child.
He eventually ended up focusing on the left and deserves a 5 star weak foot rating in FIFA.
“I have the confidence to do that. Sometimes I miss and sometimes I score.
“I’ve been practicing with my left foot since I was little and I think it’s helped my career now.”
