Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne had a brief spell at Chelsea before then manager Jose Mourinho sold him to Wolfsburg for just £18million in 2014. Manchester City ended up signing De Bruyne a year and a half later for £55m, and the Belgian has been a phenomenal player ever since.
Chelsea fans still regret the loss of De Bruyne and he scored a stunner to give Manchester City the win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening.
Speaking on his time at Chelsea, De Bruyne insists he’s over what has happened and the experience made him a stronger player.
“That’s the past, what happened happened,” De Bruyne told BT Sport after the game. “I’ve no regrets, it made me stronger. It’s part of a career, obviously if you’re at a club you want to play more.
“Chelsea made profit, I did something that was in my best interests at the time. I’m very happy at my new team City.”
He revealed his delight at the manner in which City played, as he said: “I think it was a very tactical game, very disciplined from both sides.
“We had more chances than Chelsea. It’s a nice goal but we played tactically a great game. It’s a nice win, it’s difficult to win here.”
