Video: £18m Chelsea reject scores a screamer

Kevin De Bruyne Belgium

Kevin De Bruyne was at it again yesterday for VfL Wolfsburg.

This week Jose Mourinho criticised Eden Hazard for his lack of defensive effort against Atletico Madrid in midweek - and the Belgian should be worried.

Because Mourinho has already got rid of two similar players - Juan Mata and Kevin De Bruyne.

Mourinho gave Belgian international De Bruyne a chance at the start of the season - but soon tired of the former Werder Bremen loanee and in January agreed he could leave in search of first-team football.

He moved back to the Bundesliga - signing for VfL Wolfsburg for a fee of £18 million.

After a difficult start to his life at the Volkswagen Arena he has been in great form recently.

And yesterday he was at it again.

He scored a wonderful goal against VfB Stuttgart yesterday - smashing home a screamer to give Wolfsburg a 1-0 lead.

And it didn’t get any better for Stuttgart. They scored an equaliser which would have been massive in the relegation race, but a 90th minute strike from Ivica Olic saw Wolfsburg win the game 2-1 - and keep up their chase for Champions League football next season.
