De Bruyne speaks ahead of Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has hailed Borussia Monchengladbach's ability to develop young players ahead of his side's clash against the German club on Tuesday.

"They are probably about where they should be at the moment," said De Bruyne, reports

"They develop young players into future stars and when they are established they generally move to other clubs so it's not easy for them but that said, I think they have a really good side just now.

"They are now playing the way they were last season, as their win over Bayern proves. They have recovered well from a difficult start and if they have a good second round of Bundesliga matches I think they should achieve a top four finish again.

"From our perspective, we just need to win this game and see where it takes us.

"It's going to be difficult to finish as group winners but we have to give ourselves the best chance of that happening by beating Monchengladbach.

"Even if Juventus only draw in Sevilla we will finish second, but we'll try and do our part and then see what happens in the other game.

"We need to react to our loss at Stoke so this is an opportunity for us to do that quickly."
