The English giants were crowned European champions after they beat Inter Milan 1-0 in the final.

But one peculiar thing from the celebrations that left fans confused was De Bruyne's decision to sport a Sheffield Wednesday kit.
While everyone else was donning Man City attire, the Belgian playmaker opted for the second-tier side's shirt from the '90s.
The publication claims De Bruyne's wife, Michele, is good friends with the partner of former Wednesday captain, Glenn Loovens, so much so that Loovens was spotted in Istanbul interacting with Man City fans during the final.
