Manchester City qualified for the Champions League semi-final for the first time in their history after defeating Paris Saint-Germain 1-0 at the Etihad Stadium on Tuesday.
Kevin de Bruyne scored an amazing goal for the Citizens and earned rave plaudits from all corners. Maybe not so much from Chelsea fans, who were left to rue the fact that former manager Jose Mourinho let the Belgian star leave the club a couple of seasons ago.
I wish we had a player like De Bruyne. Oh, wait, we did once.

With the amount of tears I’ll shed this weekend seeing de Bruyne back at Stamford Bridge you could grow crops in Africa.

I still can’t believe Kevin De Byrune wasn’t good enough to play for Chelsea.

Well. The future must be bright for Chelsea. Just think how many amazing players we must have if Kevin de Bruyne isn’t necessary. #CFC

I try my best to forget about that time when Chelsea sold Kevin De Bruyne because he wasn’t deemed good enough

Well done City, good to see an English team through. Painfully obvious that Mourinho shouldn’t have given up on Kevin De Bruyne so easily.
