Kevin De Bruyne Gives Most Honest Interview Of His Life After Man City's Champions League Exit
City clashed with Lyon on Saturday in the quarter-finals and were unable to book their place in the semi-finals after losing 3-1 in Lisbon.
Maxwel Cornet continued to torment City in the Champions League when he opened the scoring in the first half with a brilliant curling shot around Ederson from outside of the box.
De Bruyne, who has been in scintillating form for his side this season, pulled back an equaliser in the second half.
But the 29-year-old Belgium playmaker's efforts were undone as Mousa Dembele's second-half brace sealed a sensational victory for Lyon.
Speaking to BT Sport, De Bruyne delivered a brutally honest post-match interview as he admitted that it now "feels like [the] same old story for me."
The Belgium international explained: "It's a different year, same stuff. First half wasn't good enough, I think we know that. We started slow, we didn't have many options.
"I think second half we played really well. We came back at 1-1 and had a couple of chances. It was then obviously 2-1 and 3-1 to end the game. It was a shame for us to go out in that way.

"It feels like [the] same old story for me, to be honest.
"I've not seen it back so whatever they [VAR] decide, they decide. I'm not going to blame that, we should have done better.
"I think the second half we played well, we had them under pressure, we played more offensive like we normally do and we had them.
"Their 'keeper made a few saves and at 2-1, if Raz [Sterling] scores it's 2-2 and the game goes on.
"That's football, that's fine margins that made a difference and you know, it's over now. We need to learn, it's not good enough."
