Fans concerned after seeing footage of Kevin De Bruyne when Man City scored their first in Champions League
| Last updated
Fans have expressed concern after seeing footage of Kevin De Bruyne in Manchester City's goal celebration.
Pep Guardiola's side destroyed Real Madrid 4-0 in a breathtaking Champions League semi-final second leg performance to set up a final with Inter Milan in Istanbul.
Goals from Bernardo Silva (2), Eder Militao (own goal) and Julian Alvarez completed a dominant night for City at the Etihad and gave them a 5-1 aggregate triumph over the 14-time European Champions.
De Bruyne set up the opener with an exquisite pass to Silva but was also seen arguing with manager Guardiola while the game was going on, appearing to tell the Catalan to "shut up".
The pair were absolutely fine when the Belgian playmaker came off late on and Guardiola explained he took issue over the fact De Bruyne "made three transitions that weren’t necessary".
But after the game, Thierry Henry, who worked with De Bruyne in the Belgium national team, said he is currently dealing with a private matter and had "even more respect how he played tonight" given the situation.
Henry did not disclose details of the intimate conversation but fans noticed that De Bruyne's demeanour was a little different.
Footage of the crazy celebrations amongst the players for the opener went viral, featuring Erling Haaland picking up Silva and players embracing.
But while De Bruyne was there, he looked a little subdued and out of sorts - with a slew of supporters hoping everything is fine with the midfield maestro.
One wrote: "What is up with KDB? I hope he's alright."
Another commented: "Just look at Kevin something isn’t right you can just tell."
A third tweeted: "Peep Kdb man (heartbreak emoji)."
A fourth user replied: "Okay but pay attention to Kev."
A fifth had the same view, writing: "So no one looking at kdb he looks lost."
De Bruyne celebrated his sublime equaliser at the Santiago Bernabeu last week with a lot of emotion and Ruben Dias was seen going out of his way to involve the No.17 at the Etihad.
As per the Daily Mail, City wish to keep the matter private and are confident it will not affect the remaining games in what could be a historic treble-winning campaign.
