Video: Chelsea’s Kevin De Bruyne scores a greal goal, but gets injured in the process
Chelsea’s Kevin De Bruyne gave fans a glimpse of why they signed him 12 months ago with a well taken goal against a Malaysian XI.
But the Belgian injured himself in the process of scoring the goal.
The 22-year-old was involved in an awkward collision as he fired his volley into the net.
Fans initially feared a leg break of serious knee injury, but manager Jose Mourinho says he expects it to be only a minor problem.
He said: “When he was on the floor and asking for a change, we thought the worst.
“But the first assessment by the doctor was that it was not the ligaments for sure, and if it is something in the meniscus then it has to be a very small injury.
“So we believe it is not an important injury and hopefully it isn’t because the kid is a fantastic player. He’s showing to me in training that he is going to be a key man on the pitch.”
