Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has admitted that he was not involved in the decision to bring Kevin de Bruyne to the club, according to Goal.com.
However, when asked about the transfer, Villas-Boas responded: “You have to speak to people from the club about that. It’s not within my immediate projects. He’s a player the club have scouted for some time – I’m a manager who respects club policy.”
He also admitted that de Bruyne is unlikely to be in immediate contention for a first team place, stating that the Belgian is “a good bet for the future.” There is speculation that, as part of the deal, the youngster could be loaned back to Genk for the remainder of this season.
