Kevin De Bruyne does not enjoy living in Germany according to German media

Kevin De Bruyne doesn't enjoy life in Germany as much as he did in Belgium, if German newspapers are to be believed.

Kevin De Bruyne is spending the entire 2012-13 season in Germany, but he doesn't appear to enjoy living there. De Bruyne spoke with Het Niewsblad recently, and had the following to say about his time at Werder Bremen, and compared it to his life at Genk:

"I miss the warmth and atmosphere in Genk. The Germans are stiffer. Their mentality is not for me. If Werder is a family then it is only for the people from here."

"I was doing German lessons with the club but I stopped doing them. I didn't like it. If I am honest I wouldn't want to live in Germany in the future."

It's a real shame that De Bruyne isn't enjoying his time on loan more, as I'm sure we'd all prefer he was a bit happier. Then again, it's nice to know that he's probably unlikely to decide to bolt Chelsea in the future for Bayern Munich or another German club.

Luckily for De Bruyne, he's getting plenty of time on the pitch. Werder hasn't been a very good team this season, but De Bruyne has already logged more minutes for the Bundesliga club then he was likely to see all season for Chelsea. The best thing for all parties might be to just put his head down, work hard, and force Chelsea to keep him around next season.

Update: SInce the interview was published, De Bruyne has responded with the following via his twitter account:
