Kevin De Bruyne insists Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho won’t care about being booed by Belgium fans during Colombia’s 2-0 win in Brussels on Thursday.

The Blues manager travelled to watch the friendly which saw reported Chelsea target Radamel Falcao help his country comfortably beat Belgium as he scored the opener past Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet.

Mourinho was subjected to jeers each time his face appeared on the stadium’s big screen during the friendly, but De Bruyne, who has only started three Premier League games this season, reckons Mourinho won’t be fazed by the abuse.

“Our coach doesn’t care. He’s used to being booed, and I don’t think it would have bothered him at all,” De Bruyne is quoted as saying.

Earlier this week, Belgium coach Marc Wilmots urged De Bruyne to seek a move away from the west London side ahead of next summer’s World Cup.

“My request is that Kevin de Bruyne plays regular first-team football,” Wilmots told Bild.

“Everyone knows what he is capable of.”

On Schalke’s speculated interest in the midfielder, Wilmots added: “Schalke is a special club for me and it would be great to see a player of this quality play for Schalke 04.”
