Ex-Man City star pledges 'naked conga' if De Bruyne misses out on PFA award

One former Manchester City player has vowed to dance naked through the streets if Kevin De Bruyne doesn't end the 2017-18 campaign as PFA Player of the Year.

The Belgium midfielder maestro put in another pivotal shift in City's 7-2 hammering of Stoke on Saturday afternoon, providing two assists and a succession of exquisite passes as the hosts ran riot at the Etihad.

So impressive was De Bruyne's performance that former City midfielder Paul Lake felt compelled to make an outlandish gamble.

Indeed, if De Bruyne doesn't go on to be crowned the best player in the league, Lake and his wife Jo promised to "dance a naked conga" in a supermarket car park in their hometown of Stockport.

Unfortunately, the Lakes' joint-wager was quickly scotched when it was pointed out to Jo that the Kwik Save in question was closed down over a decade ago.

Phew. The people of Stockport may have just dodged a collective bullet there.
