Mourinho insists he did not make De Bruyne

Jose Mourinho insists he did not make a “mistake” in allowing Kevin De Bruyne to leave Chelsea as the decision was taken out of his hands.

De Bruyne moved from Chelsea to Wolfsburg for £18million in 2014 and has since gone on to become one of the best midfielders in world football.

The Manchester City star won the Premier League’s PFA Player of the Year award for the second successive season this term and is currently starring for Belgium at Euro 2020.

Chelsea have been left to rue his departure, but Mourinho claims he wanted him to stay at Stamford Bridge.

“He impressed me so much I made the decision I don’t want this kid to go on loan, I want him to stay, and in our first match of the Premier League season he started against Hull City,” Mourinho told talkSPORT.

“In the second match we got to Old Trafford and after this he come to me and said, ‘I want to play every match, I want to play every minute’. He put a lot of pressure on that.

“He wanted to leave, he wanted to go to Germany where he was previously on loan and so happy, and his decision was to go. He put big pressure on that and it worked very well for him.

“The story is there and the quality of the player is absolute, he is top five in the world.”

Mourinho added that De Bruyne was not prepared to bide his time and wait for his chance at Stamford Bridge.

“When he was supposed to leave on loan and I made the decision for him to stay, I saw those qualities. He did not have the experience and maturity he has now, but his feet and his vision was already there,” he continued.
