What They're Saying: Kevin De Bruyne

"One goal. They don’t want you anymore. Two goals. Too quiet. Three goals. Too difficult. Four goals. They don’t want you anymore. Five goals. Because of who you are. I scored five goals in one half."

-- Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne on the turning point in his career, which took off when he was playing for the second team at Genk in his native Belgium and scored five goals as a second-half sub. It came after Genk told the quiet De Bruyne's parents it wouldn't pay for a family to house him because the family from the previous season didn't want him back because he wouldn't interact with it.
