De Bruyne gave Mourinho a reminder of his qualities by scoring for his country against Wales in Tuesday's World Cup qualifier and insists he could still have a future at Chelsea.
"I will work hard and hope that I get my chance. I have to show the coach my level," he said.
"I was disappointed just like the other players who didn't travel, but I wasn't the only player who wasn't there.
"He knows what I can do. I played a good 90 minutes and showed everyone that I am fit. I can only do my best."
