Ahead of the Manchester Derby this weekend, Manchester City superstar Kevin De Bruyne has once again talked about his sour relationship with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

The Belgian played under the Portuguese at Chelsea in the 2013/14 campaign, where he hardly featured before he moved to German side Wolfsburg.

Following his exit, De Bruyne slammed Mourinho for the way he was treated at the Blues, and has again talked about his relationship with his former boss, revealing they hardly communicated.

"I would say... distant. I'm not really somebody who speaks a lot with coaches," he told The BBC.

"I think if a coach wants to speak with you then you just do it. He's the boss. You can be good with each other but still there is a distance between a coach and a player.

"I only spoke with him (Mourinho) twice, that's when I wanted to leave to (go to) Dortmund at the beginning of the summer and then in the second meeting I just said, 'for me it's better to go, I want to play football."

In 2015, De Bruyne left Wolfsburg for the Citizens, where he has quickly become one of the world’s leading playmakers.

The 26-year-old has played 135 times for City, scoring 34 goals and assisting a further 57 strikes.

@Maloh11 Amen. When Jesus says yes nobody can say no or stop you. The late dr Myles used to stay in an old mission house with rats eating his trousers and the teacher calling him names but he died on his private jet
