Manchester City ace Kevin de Bruyne insists he's enjoying life at the Etihad, especially with Pep Guardiola running the show.

The Spaniard took charge of the side last summer, but failed to bring in any silverware. He looks set to lead the team to the Premier League title this time around, however; and the prospect must be an exciting one for the player.

De Bruyne, who has kept up with his grand displays this season, sat down for an exclusive with Jamie Redknapp on Sky Sports' Nissan Match Zone, and opened up on life at the Manchester club

"I like it here, it is the perfect environment and since I came here there has been a lot of trust in me," he explained. "I like the project they are doing from the moment I came here.

"There was an older team (when I first arrived), they did a lot of transfers, a lot of young people, they are building for the future.

"I like the project and I am really happy here and I see myself being a long time here."

The 26-year-old was introduced to the Premier League by Chelsea, but the Blues moved him on to Wolfsburg, citing differences with then manager Jose Mourinho, and City decided to bring him back to England .

The Belgian has scored 24 goals and delivered 45 assists in 104 Premier League appearances since his move from Belgium, and will only improve as the years go by.

He now feels at home under Guardiola, claiming that the manager's style suits him quite well.

"Since Pep came to the club, he plays a style of football I like to play," he said. "It makes it easy as a player."
