Wolfsburg star De Bruyne slams Mourinho: I should NEVER have joined Chelsea

VfL Wolfsburg winger Kevin de Bruyne regrets signing for Chelsea. De Bruyne managed just three games for the Blues before signing for Wolfsburg last summer.

"Chelsea FC has not been the best choice at that point in time then. Being with Chelsea FC is like being in a different world. Manager José Mourinho did not explain to me why I was not playing more regularly for the club.

"Maybe things would have been different if Chelsea FC had to pay 45 million Euro and not 8 million Euro when I arrived from RacingGenk. A higher transfer fee would have potentially handed me a different sort of status inside the club. And, possibly, handed me more chances (to play more regularly)."
