John Terry believes the midfielder Man City signed in 2014 is better than Kevin De Bruyne.
Frank Lampard, according to John Terry, is a better player than Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.
In a video with GOAL (via Twitter), the Chelsea veteran was asked to compare the former Everton manager to numerous iconic midfielders, including De Bruyne.
Frank Lampard notably spent a season at Manchester City, scoring 11 goals and providing six assists in all competitions during the 2014/2015 season.
Given his remarkable effect at the Etihad Stadium, a discussion has erupted in recent years regarding where De Bruyne rates among the greatest of the best in English football.
But, according to John Terry, former Chelsea and England teammate Frank Lampard was a better midfielder than Kevin De Bruyne.
“It’s still Lamps for me,” he said to GOAL (via Twitter).
In addition to Steven Gerrard, Paul Scholes, Mesut Ozil, Patrick Vieira, N’Golo Kante, Michael Essien, and Yaya Toure, the retired centre-back chose Frank Lampard.
Kevin De Bruyne, a Manchester City icon, has outdone Frank Lampard.
Given that John Terry dominated English football alongside Frank Lampard in the same Chelsea side, it’s no wonder that he prefers him to Kevin De Bruyne.
However, in our opinion, the Belgian playmaker is superior to the Englishman.
Given that both midfielders have won practically every single prize in club football, De Bruyne is a better all-around player than Lampard.
Frank Lampard is a stronger goal scorer than Kevin De Bruyne, but the latter is far superior as a playmaker, creator, and dribbler.
Even defensively, the treble winner’s workrate is comparable to Lampard’s, making the comparison between the two players rather one-sided in favour of the former.
