Kevin De Bruyne was forced off with an injury during the Champions League final where Chelsea beat Manchester City 1-0 to lift the European trophy.
In the incident leading to Kevin’s injury, Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger had been involved when he tried blocking the Manchester City midfielder from making his run.
After Chelsea won the encounter, Rudiger later sends his apology to the Belgian showing that his foul was never intentional. However, Belgian national team manager Roberto Martinez also went ahead to criticize the German in the past over the fool that subsequently saw Kevin De Bruyne sit out Belgian’s Euro 2020 opener against Russia.
Now that De Bruyne is back to playing following his substitute appearances on Thursday against Denmark to set up and score a goal himself, he has finally opened up on the Champions League final injury after Rudiger’s challenge.
“I was not upset with Rudiger, it was one of those things that happen on the field. He tried to block me, not to break my nose,” KDB said.
Belgium is up next against Finland for their last group stage game in the ongoing Euro 2020 championship and the playmaker could be ready to feature in the game from start.
