Kevin De Bruyne is once again shining in the Bundesliga after making the permanent switch from Chelsea to Wolfsburg. It seemed that the talented Belgian just didn't feel the love under Jose Mourinho, and unfortunately for De Bruyne, he doesn't seem to be feeling the love from a former girlfriend, who has this week spoken of an affair she had with Belgium team-mate, and Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
Initially the family of De Bruyne had threatened legal action if Caroline Lijnen gave her side of the story, but due to the release of Kevin De Bruyne's autobiography (what 23 year old needs to write an autobiography?) and his discussion of the incident and how he feels Courtois stole his woman, she has been allowed to give her account.
De Bruyne was alleged to have cheated on his girlfriend with one of her close friends, but eventually the couple settled their differences and were back together. Lijnen was due to visit Madrid with a friend who was also a friend of Courtois, and De Bryune was fine with that, but he didn't count on the promising goalkeeper being a seductively smooth operator, as Lijnen reveals she was wooed by Courtois:
Thibaut gave me in that one night, what I'd sorely missed for three years with Kevin. With Thibaut I could have good conversations and he also cooked nicely for me. Such a thing Kevin never did. And then suddenly we clicked.
It's no wonder that De Bruyne made a swift exit from Stamford Bridge, and apparently Belgium manager Marc Wilmots even consulted De Bruyne on whether or not to omit Courtois from the national squad.
Now, if there were Dream Team, one of them would end up dead and the other would win the FA Cup final before being arrested on the pitch.
