De Bruyne denies Mourinho rift

Chelsea winger Kevin de Bruyne insists the media were wrong about his perceived row with Jose Mourinho.

The Belgian international was left out Mourinho's last Champions League squad and hasn't featured since, fuelling rumours of a falling out - something which de Bruyne denies.

Speaking about his lack of first team action at Chelsea, he said:

Am I panicking? Of course not. Honestly, I'm not worried. You [journalists] seem to be more worried than me.

Mourinho is the boss and he decides who plays. He tells me when I've done something wrong, but I've heard nothing as negative from him as what I've been reading in the media.
