Former Chelsea FC midfielder Kevin de Bruyne, has expressed his ‘disgust’ at the Chelsea FC hierarchy. Playing for Wolfsburg now, Kevin understands that end to his Chelsea career was almost inevitable due to the ‘big name’ and ‘star signings’ present inside the Chelsea FC team. The Belgium international made the move after failing to break into the starting XI at Stamford Bridge following his 6.7 million-pound transfer from Genk in 2012.However, De Bruyne feels he was doomed to fail at Chelsea from the start, given his transfer fee did not match that of the likes of Eden Hazard and Willian.
“I also played well there, but it is like it often is in football: The new 30 million-euro signing gets more minutes than the 10 million-euro signing,” De Bruyne told Wolfsburger Allgemeine Zeitung.
De Bruyne, was also quick to target current Chelsea FC boss Jose Mourinho, and said that the ‘special one’ lacks analysis of the game. De Bruyne compared Mourinho to Dieter Hacking, his coach at Wolfsburg, in an interview with Kicker.
“I think that he [Mourinho] is a good coach. But nobody thinks it’s fun to not play,” he said. “Dieter Hecking talks to me much more, that wasn’t the case before. Mourinho did not analyse the game before or after. He only talked about the opponents for five minutes.”
However the robust Belgian midfielder, who could ply his trade anywhere in the attacking department and is known for his pin point crossing abilities, was more than happy to join Wolfsburg, as he believes they are a club with ambition and unlike Chelsea FC who just have money.
“”I came here from Chelsea. That’s a club where you have everything you wish for — physios, three doctors and the food you want. That’s a different world,” he said. “But you can’t compare the clubs. Chelsea have way more money than Wolfsburg. However, for a German club Wolfsburg have a lot of options, and they want to get to the top.”
Kevin de Bruyne, 23, has helped Wolfsburg secure a return to European Competitions and has also led the team two a second place in this season.
