Man City ace De Bruyne's agent: Mourinho still refuses to admit his mistake!

The agent of Manchester City attacker Kevin de Bruyne has had a pop at Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Patrick De Koster took a swipe at Mourinho for letting De Bruyne leave Chelsea during his time in charge at Stamford Bridge.

The agent said: "To this day Mourinho struggles to admit he has made a mistake. He said Kevin was not yet ready for the first team.

"By contrast Chelsea admit they got things wrong. Wolfsburg got a bargain when they paid just £18m for Kevin in 2014.

"He had four options in 2015. He could have stayed at Wolfsburg, but by then he had seen and done it all.

"He could have joined Bayern Munich, but they never go over a certain limit with paying their players.

"Paris Saint-German were a third option, but there are too few top-level matches in France.

"Fourthly, Manchester City, who play a game of Champions League standard almost every week.

"We made a good choice in joining them. Since then he has become 'King Kev.'"
