Chelsea’s centre back, Antonio Rüdiger, has apologised over a collision with Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne in the Champions League final match played on Saturday, which forced the Belgian national out of the field prematurely, and replaced by Gabriel Jesus.

In the second half of the game, Rüdiger obstructed De Bruyne’s run towards goal, but not without inflicting serious facial injury on the 29-year-old.

Rüdiger, via Twitter, has said that it was not intentional from him.

Meanwhile, Rüdiger was yellow-carded for his foul on De Bruyne, Belgium’s head coach, Roberto Martínez, believes that the German defender ought to have been shown a red card by referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz, adding that “Rüdiger very fortunate.”

Although De Bruyne has left the hospital, his availability for EURO 2020 hangs in the balance and depends on how quickly his injuries heal, as Belgium’s opening Group B match takes place on June 12 where The Red Devils will slug it out with Russia at St Petersburg.
