Tonight Kevin de Bruyne has made Chelsea directors regret to sell him in January 2014, when he left for Wolfsburg to get more playing time and convinced to make an impact in top class football one day.
Today’s clash was one of those where the Belgian showed he’s become a world class player, capable to decide a big match with a stunning shot, something only the best players do.
Speaking after the game, De Bruyne showed his satisfaction:
“I think it was a tactical game and disciplined game from both sides. We had more chances, not too many but a little bit more. We played tactically a great game, It’s a nice win because it’s difficult to win here,” De Bruyne told BT Sport.
“It ends a very nice month for us. it’s only the beginning but it’s good to maintain the winning streak. We want to win as many as possible.”
The Belgian also claimed that he has no bad feelings or regrets for leaving Chelsea in 2014, when he still was a young kid who needed to improve his playing style:
“That’s the past, what happened happened,” De Bruyne claimed
“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.”
