Ilkay Gündogan does not rule out a return to the Bundesliga
In addition, when asked about the toughest midfielder he has ever met, Gündogan’s choice fell on Chelsea’s N’Golo Kante. He called Kevin De Bruyne and Mesut Özil “perhaps the two best playmakers the Premier League has ever seen”.
Gündogan was also asked if he could imagine returning to the Bundesliga. The former Dortmund player’s answer: “I’m very happy at Manchester City at the moment. But never say never. The Bundesliga is still a great league that I follow a lot. It will always be interesting for a German international.”
