Kevin De Bruyne questions UEFA as Man City fan travels to Champions League final

Kevin De Bruyne slams ‘unimportant’ UEFA Nations League
Kevin De Bruyne certainly looked like he enjoyed his football over the past few months for Manchester City, but the same likely won’t be said of his upcoming international commitments.
The City midfielder is currently on international duty with Belgium preparing for a string of Nations League fixtures, but after a gruelling season that saw De Bruyne overcome injuries, Covid-19 and patchy form to inspire City to a fourth Premier League title in five years, it’s clear that he would rather be elsewhere.
“For me, the Nations League is not important,” said the 30-year-old. “We have to play these games, but it feels like a campaign of friendly games. Just glorified friendlies after a long and tough season. I’m not looking forward to it.”

Man City fan travels to Paris for Champions League final
A last-gasp collapse in Madrid might have cost Manchester City a trip to Paris for the Champions League final, but the same can’t be said of one City fan.
Earlier this month, City were just minutes away from reaching the final of Europe’s elite club competition for the second consecutive season, but two Rodrygo goals in 80 seconds and a Karim Benzema penalty completed the most unlikely of Real Madrid comebacks.
It was Los Blancos that went on to face Liverpool in the final at the Stade de France, one which they won thanks to a second-half goal from Vinicius Junior.
Speaking to Sky Sports ahead of Saturday’s final in Paris, City fan Andy revealed that he had made the trip to France despite City’s absence after getting a bit overexcited in the closing stages of the semi-final.
