Chelsea midfielder Kevin de Bruyne says that he remains calm about his recent axing  from the west London club’s starting lineup by head coach Jose Mourinho, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The Belgium international was finally brought back to Stamford Bridge last summer by the self-styled ‘Special One’ to be part of the Blues first-team squad.

Chelsea originally signed the ginger-haired 22-year-old from Belgium outfit Genk in January 2012 on a five-and-a-half-year deal for a fee of just £7 million, although the player was immediately loaned straight back to his former employers for the second half of that campaign.

However, the club then opted to once again loan de Bruyne out for the whole of the 2012-13 season, with the Belgium joining Bundesliga side Werder Bremen, where he excelled for the Germans.

In total, de Bruyne managed to register ten goals and ten assists in his 34 matches in all competitions for Bremen, all but one of which came in the league, and it was that eye-catching form that managed to persuade Mourinho to recall the player to the capital last summer.

But despite starting the club’s first two Premier League matches, de Bruyne has since fallen out of favour with the Portuguese, although in an interview with Belgian newspaper La Derniere Heure, the midfielder said on the matter: “I really don’t worry. You make it more of a problem than I do.

“Mourinho is the boss, he chooses who plays. We do not talk about it really.

“He tells me when I do something bad, but frankly I haven’t heard such negative comments.

“I chose to stay (instead of going on loan) and I have no regrets. I continue to fight hard. My chance will come.

“I’m really not concerned about finding a solution in January. That we will have to see.”
