Video: £18m Chelsea reject scores a screamer

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.
