Kevin De Bruyne Gives Most Honest Interview Of His Life After Man City's Champions League Exit

Kevin De Bruyne Gives Most Honest Interview Of His Life After Man City's Champions League Exit

Kevin De Bruyne poured out his disappointment over Manchester City's lack of success in Europe after Pep Guardiola's men crashed out of the Champions League.

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.
