De Bruyne Discusses Why He Ditched Mourinho's Chelsea

Manchester City superstar Kevin De Bruyne, who is one of many footballers who have fallen out with Jose Mourinho, has discussed why he decided to leave Chelsea in 2014 when the manager was in charge of the London side.

Click through the mini-gallery above to see five other stars Mourinho has famously clashed with during his managerial career so far.

The Portuguese tactician, who has butted heads with the likes of Iker Casillas, Sergio Ramos and Eden Hazard in the past, is said to be at war with France international Paul Pogba, with things being so bad the midfielder is considering a move away from Old Trafford.

In a new Amazon documentary called All or Nothing, De Bruyne, who was publicly criticised by Mourinho in 2013, opened up about his decision to leave the Blues in 2014, and admitted that he lost patience with the way the 55-year-old was treating him. 

"I was only 20 years old when I decided to sign for Chelsea," the Belgium international said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"I got my chances in the first few games and I thought, okay, things are going well, I played okay, we won the games.

"But then one day it stopped. Knowing me, I had not a lot of patience at the time, I decided to go in January."
