Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne was forced off in the second half of the Champions League final with a head injury after a worrying collision with Antonio Rudiger.
De Bruyne collided with Chelsea defender Rudiger in the 56th minute as the Blues led 1-0 through Kai Havertz’s goal, resulting in an elongated break in play on Saturday.
City playmaker De Bruyne received lengthy treatment from the team’s medical staff but was deemed unable to continue.
Visibly upset as he was helped from the field, De Bruyne endured a frustrating evening as his influence was limited by Chelsea’s defence.
De Bruyne played one key pass but completed only half of his passes in the Chelsea half.
The scenes that brought about the end of his involvement will be of concern to Belgium head coach Roberto Martinez, with De Bruyne due to link up with the Red Devils after the final ahead of their Euro 2020 campaign.
Belgium are scheduled to begin their Euros campaign against Russia in St Petersburg on June 12.
