final against Chelsea after a rough tackle from Antonio Rudiger and his participation in the Euro 2020 this summer for his national team is in doubt.

He left the match in tears which could have been because of his frustration with injuries this season.

“Rüdiger is very, very fortunate,”

said Martínez.

“When you look at the replay, there’s no clash of heads. He’s properly leaving the shoulder against Kevin.

"He seems concussed and we will see the state of that. But that leaves a sour taste, because Rüdiger’s holding his head [as if he too was injured] – it’s almost that he wants to show that he’s hiding something.

“For me, it was excessive force and it was reckless. And it should have been a red card.

"Kevin is not a player that goes down for no reason. You can see the pain and it’s a swollen eye.”

De Bruyne has been struggling with injury this season, missing several games due to a hamstring injury, and has made only 25 appearances for the Citizens in the Premier League, and now this injury has put his participation in Euro 2020 in doubt.
