Kevin de Bruyne mocked by Chelsea fans

Published 10 Comments

It's safe to say that Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne flattered to deceive over two legs against Real Madrid in the Champions League semi-final. 

The Belgium international, who was instrumental in helping his side secure their place in the final four of the competition, failed to stamp his mark on proceedings throughout both games. 

Ultimately, Manchester City crashed out of the competition this evening as Gareth Bale's deflected goal handed Real Madrid a place alongside rivals Atletico Madrid in next month's showdown.

De Bruyne and his City teammates, on the other hand, won't be starring in their first European final with the Citizens. 

In all honesty, it wasn't only De Bruyne who failed to produce the goods at the Bernabeu. The likes of Sergio Aguero, Yaya Toure and co. struggled, while captain Vincent Kompany had to be replaced after just eight minutes after picking up yet another agonising injury on the field of play.

But it was De Bruyne's lack of contribution that must have seriously frustrated City supporters. The dynamic midfielder has more often than not led by example and acted as the club's talisman this term but was nowhere to be seen on a tricky night in Spain.

It cost City, who were quite clearly in need of a moment of magic from one of their star players. Strangely enough, though, it's not fans of the Citizens who have taken over social media this evening to discuss the player's performance against Real. 

That honour has been left to Chelsea supporters, who have mocked their ex-player for his below-par display. Chelsea and their former manager, Jose Mourinho, have been trolled on a number of occasions this term for allowing the midfielder to leave Stamford Bridge, so Blues fans opted to make the most out of his misery this evening.
