Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has insisted Kevin De Bruyne will get a chance in the first-team having shown desire and professionalism in training, writes The Guardian.

The Belgian international joined Chelsea almost two years ago and has had to spend time on loan at Genk and Werder Bremen with limited opportunities at Stamford Bridge.


De Bruyne looked set to be a first-team regular as the campaign got under-way, having started the first three games of the Premier League season.


But Mourinho was critical of the 22-year-old after a League Cup performance and has made just a five-minute substitute appearance since.


De Bruyne has debated a move away from Stamford Bridge with the World Cup in Brazil looming next summer in the hope to get picked for the Belgium squad, but Mourinho has insisted a first-team opportunity will be made for the midfielder.


"Kevin is showing desire and working very hard," said Mourinho. "I feel sorry for not giving him big opportunities up to now, but he's working better than ever. He's sad when he's not selected or playing, but he's working professionally which, for me, was a change from the beginning. When he works the way he is, he has to have a chance.”


De Bruyne’s previous loan spell at Werder Bremen was successful, as he made 32 appearances, scoring 10 goals at the German club.
