The 21-year-old AC Milan also talks about the World Cup: “It’s the dream I had as a child, happy to have achieved it despite being very young. De Bruyne? I admire him, he makes everything seem easy”

    Charles De Ketelaere does not regret having chosen Milan, on the contrary. He looks to the future with optimism and focuses only on the progress to be made in order to finally become a protagonist in Pioli’s team. “Milan is a big step for me, I’m very happy with my choice but there are many factors to consider – the 21-year-old Belgian explained in an interview with Sky -. At a football level, I still have to improve in various aspects, but I’m really happy to be as I am”. Meanwhile, CDK is settling in Milan: “I think anyone who’s been here knows it’s a beautiful city. Unfortunately I haven’t visited it properly yet, but I’m not here to be a tourist. I like the atmosphere, but I I enjoy it even just driving around a bit.”


    De Ketelaere, however, is now focused only on the World Cup. “Playing in Belgium was my big dream as a child, it’s nice to have already succeeded despite being so young – he assures -. At the moment in Belgium we are really lucky because we have so many world stars, quite a few players who are among the best in the world. We young people try to learn from them how to behave. There you understand that you obviously still have some steps to take and it’s nice to be able to measure yourself against such strong teammates to improve”.

    De Bruyne model

    In the national team, Charles has the chance to measure himself against one of his idols. “I’ve always admired Kevin De Bruyne above all, partly for his position and then for his elegance, for the way he plays football and makes everything seem easy. Playing in the World Cup was more of a child’s dream for me, now instead has become a reality – he concludes – I know that to get there you have to go through your performances with the club, but in any case I will try to give my contribution, because the most important thing is to help the team”.
