Manchester City midfielder, Kevin De Bruyne says he can hardly recollect what really transpired in the team’s Champions League final loss against Chelsea.
Recall that the Manchester City playmaker suffered a serious facial injury in the second half of his side’s defeat to Chelsea in last season’s showpiece in Porto following a collision with Antonio Rudiger.
He made this known during a pre-match press conference ahead of City game against Club Brugge on today (Tuesday).
“I don’t remember a lot after the incident so there’s not a lot of memories.
“I remember some chances in the first half and the goal but after the collision, I don’t remember a lot. I don’t remember how I got into the hospital on the night itself.
“I remember going back in the morning to the team hotel at 10am still with my City kit on, that’s what I remember.

“But it’s sport, it happens. It’s not the best thing that ever happened but you go on with it.”
The injury also meant De Bruyne missed Belgium’s opening match at Euro 2020, a tournament which he then ended with ankle ligament damage. That issue in turn prevented him starting any of City’s first five Premier League matches of the new campaign.
