City will appeal UEFA's punishment with the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but De Bruyne insists his teammates are solely focused on football.
He told Sky Sports: "Obviously we were on holiday when the statement happened and we came back and just played football.
"The situation is what it is. We came back and trained like normal. For us nothing really changed.
"We still have a lot to play for with the two cups and Champions League so let's hope we can find rhythm as quickly as possible and win some titles."
