MANCHESTER CITY star Kevin de Bruyne revealed he and Liverpool ace Virgil van Dijk are close after Sunday’s 2-2 draw at the Etihad.
De Bruyne and Van Dijk were seen having a “friendly chat” after full-time and the City talisman confirmed that they actually “see each other a lot”.
That is because their children got to the same school and play together, so the two rivals happen to have something significant in common.
The Belgium international has three kids – Mason, six, Rome, three, and Suri, one.
Van Dijk, on the other hand, has two daughters – Nila, eight, and Jadi, six.
De Bruyne said: “I know Virgil.. Me and Virgil see each other a lot.

“Our children go to the same school and they like to play together, so it was just a friendly chat.”
De Bruyne opened the scoring after just five minutes with Diogo Jota equalising eight minutes later.
Gabriel Jesus put Pep Guardiola’s men back in front on 37 minutes but Sadio Mane levelled things up again one minute into second half.
Raheem Sterling thought he’d won it, only to be denied by the offside flag.
De Bruyne enjoyed some quality time with his wife Michele and two eldest kids after his friendly chat with Van Dijk.
The 30-year-old also decided to treat his children with some Happy Meals from McDonalds after a hard-fought result.
