Kevin De Bruyne breaks silence on Chelsea defender Rudiger’s intention over his injury in Champions League final

Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne claims he doesn’t hold any malice towards Chelsea star Antonio Rudiger for injuring him in the Champions League final.

De Bruyne was forced off the pitch after clashing with Rudiger in the second half of the game which the Blues went on to win 1-0.

The Belgian doesn’t even remember what happened as he was suffering from a concussion, but after seeing pictures from the game, he’s sure Rudiger meant no harm.

De Bruyne told HLN: “I have seen the images back. He just wanted to block me, not to cause an injury.

“For me, it was not a red card. I was concussed, so the final is all a blur.”
