Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has revealed that he has no regrets over leaving Premier League champions Chelsea, report ESPN.
De Bruyne has firmly established himself among the world elite during his time at the Etihad. Playing under the stewardship of Pep Guardiola has elevated the Belgium international to the next level, and Chelsea experienced that first hand in front of their own fans on Saturday evening.
Thibaut Courtois could only stand and watch as De Bruyne’s stunning drive nestled in the top corner of his goal. Antonio Conte will undoubtedly be ruing Jose Mourinho’s decision to part with him in the winter of 2014, but those regrets are not reciprocated by De Bruyne.
ESPN quote De Bruyne, who reveals that he is happy with the way things have panned out for him in his career:
“That’s the way it goes, it’s a business. At that point it was a good decision for me to go and maybe for them it was also good to let me go. There’s no bad feeling at all. It’s just part of life and you need to grow up.”
De Bruyne may well be crowned a Premier League champion at the season’s end, but he could have had two winners medals if he stayed put in West London.
