Chelsea star unconcerned by Mourinho snub

Published Add your comment

Kevin De Bruyne has revealed he is not worrying about his current situation at Chelsea, reports Sport Witness.

The winger, who Chelsea signed for £6.7million in 2012 before shipping him on loan to former side Genk and Werder Bremen, has been left out of Jose Mourinho's recent squads.

The Belgium star last played for Chelsea in the Capital One Cup on September 24 against League One side Swindon Town.

De Bruyne was substituted in the 79th minute due to his poor display at the County Ground and was subsequently made to train with Chelsea's Under-21 squad.

The 22-year-old, speaking after Belgium's crucial World Cup qualifier win over Croatia, told Sport Wereld: "Of course I am not [panicking]. I really don't worry. You make it more of a problem than I do.

"Mourinho is the boss, he chooses who plays. We do not talk about it really, no.

"He tells me when I do something bad, but frankly I haven't heard such negative comments."

De Bruyne also admitted that he was slightly worried when Chelsea forked out £30million on fellow attacking midfielder Willian - but revealed he is happy to fight for a first-team spot at Stamford Bridge.

"I chose to stay and I have no regrets. Still, Willian then came in at the last minute, which was a bit difficult, but I continue to fight hard," added De Bruyne.

"My chance will come. I'm really not concerned about finding a solution in January. That we will have to see."

De Bruyne is likely to be back in contention on Saturday when Chelsea host Cardiff City.
