De Bruyne sent back to London for scan
Chelsea forward Kevin de Bruyne is to leave the club's Asia tour and return to England to have a scan on the injury he sustained on Sunday.
He was taken off on a stretcher, but was able to join his team-mates on the bench for the final quarter of the match at the Shah Alam Stadium.
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho said initial assessments suggested the injury was not as bad as first feared but De Bruyne underwent further tests in Malaysia on Monday after which it was determined he would return to London, ruling him out of the final match of the Asia tour in Jakarta on Thursday.
Leaving to London tonight. Fully medical check up there. Feeling ok. Hopefully a good result after the check up— Kevin De Bruyne (@DeBruyneKev) July 22, 2013
