De Bruyne: No issue with Mourinho


The midfielder has made just three appearances for Chelsea since the opening match of the season against Hull City and was criticised by Mourinho for his performance against Swindon in the Capital One Cup in September.

Over his omission from the first team, De Bruyne told Sport Wereld: "Of course not. I really don't worry. You [the media] 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 many negative comments."

De Bruyne insists he is not considering leaving Stamford Bridge in January because of the Willian signing from Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala.

"I chose to stay and I have no regrets," De Bruyne continued

"Still, Willian then came in at the last minute, which was a bit difficult, but I continue to fight hard. My chance will come.

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