Manchester City attacker Kevin de Bruyne has revisited his blow up with Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

The Manchester United manager has been blamed for allowing the Belgian to slip the net at Stamford Bridge.

And De Bruyne recalled a flashpoint in 2014 to The Times: “I just said I can play. I have no statistics – two games, what do you want me to do?

“I had a feeling I wasn’t even going to play. Even if he said you’re going to play more games, from two games I was maybe going to go to five. It was, for me, a good decision to leave.

“For them, in the end, it was also a good decision. They sold me for more money for a player who didn’t play.

“I played in Germany for a good year [at Bremen on loan], so that’s why my value went up. But I went to Wolfsburg just to play football. I hate it when I cannot contribute.”
