Carragher continued to praise De Bruyne by saying he is a “manager’s dream” and believes he has had impressive “longevity in his career.”
The Sky Sports pundit explained: “The numbers he gets with assists and goals, he’s a manager’s dream.

“I think he’s had great longevity in his career because I still think he’ll have the ability to play that deep role, maybe when his legs go a little bit because he’s got a great engine.
“But his passing ability is as good as anything we’ve ever seen in the Premier League. And he can play that role when he’s in his mid-thirties not a problem.”
