EPL: De Bruyne reveals moment he realised his Chelsea was career over

Belgium playmaker, Kevin De Bruyne, has revealed that he knew his time at Chelsea was over after he was asked to play in a Carabao Cup fixture against Swindon Town.

De Bruyne, who currently plays for Manchester City, joined Chelsea in 2012.

But the 30-year-old was infamously sold by former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho, two years later after failing to make any real impact at Stamford Bridge.

De Bruyne was sold to Wolfsburg for £18million in 2014.

“Chelsea really wanted to keep me and give me a chance, but I really wanted to go to Dortmund,” De Bruyne told Play Sports’ MID MID podcast.

“I had a good feeling about that and I always try to make decisions based on feelings.

“Eventually, I did play for Chelsea, but only in the [Carabao] cup at Swindon. That was really dramatic. I hadn’t played for a month and then you have to play against a League Two side. At that point, it was done.

“I never went to Jose Mourinho. I trained hard, I showed enough, but it’s a myth in football that if you train well, you get chances. That is just not true. I let it hang for a while because I didn’t see a chance to play anymore, but then I learned to behave differently sometimes, and that you can get out of such a situation. At the time, I didn’t see that. I just wanted to leave [Chelsea].”

He added, “I don’t hate Mourinho. “I’m not a little kid. Things just didn’t click at that time.”
