Kevin De Bruyne opens up his relationship with Jose Mourinho.
The Belgian made only three Premier League appearances during his one-year spell with Chelsea between 2013-14.
Undoubtedly one of the best European footballers in recent times, De Bruyne insists that he doesn’t hate former manager Jose Mourinho.
De Bruyne said: “They [Chelsea] really wanted to keep me and give me a chance but I actually wanted to go to Dortmund [but that move didn’t materialise].
“I had a good feeling about that – and I always decide by feeling. I did play a bit at Chelsea, but away at Swindon in the cup… that was really dramatic.
“I hadn’t played for a month and then you have to play against a League 2 club like that. After that, it was over.
He added: “I never went to Jose Mourinho. I trained hard; I showed enough. But it’s a football myth that if you train well, you get chance.
“That is not true. I left it hanging a bit 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. But I didn’t see that then. I just wanted to leave. And I don’t hate Mourinho either, I’m not a little kid. It just didn’t work out then.”
