Matt Le Tissier applauds Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne's weekend goal

The former Southampton man was very impressed with the Belgian's effort.

Matt Le Tissier certainly knows a thing or two about scoring special goals. During his time at Southampton in the Premier League he earned a reputation for scoring special goals for the South Coast club.

Which means he is certainly an expert on wondergoals, something he feels Kevin De Bruyne pulled off this weekend.

The Belgian scored a sweet strike against Newcastle United at the weekend during a 6-1 win for City.

Some commented that the slice volley the Belgian netted might have been accidental but it looks as though Le Tiss feels the attempt was deliberate.

He Tweeted:

De Bruyne has certainly looked a great buy since arriving from Wolfsburg. The former Chelsea youngster has put in some great performances for the club – netting four goals and bagging two assists.

The 24-year-old is certainly shaming Chelsea for letting him go and if he continues to perform like this for Manchester City then Jose Mourinho will have to answer some tricky questions.
