De Bruyne Faces 3-4 Month Absence with Knee Injury

Date:

Manchester City’s Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne will be sidelined for “a few months” with a bad knee injury, for which he may need to undergo surgery. The 32-year-old Belgian was forced off the pitch shortly after the first half of City’s Champions League final win against Inter Milan and has not played a single minute of pre-season. De Bruyne returned to action in the second half of the Community Shield shoot-out defeat by Arsenal and subsequently led the team against Burnley in Friday’s Premier League debut. But after 23′ he asked the bench to be replaced.

Hypothesis 3-4 months of stop

Coach Pep Guardiola said that the problem concerned the hamstring itself which would cause him to skip “a few months”, 3-4 months of stop are assumed. But an operation is not excluded. “It’s a serious injury – said Guardiola – we have to decide whether or not to have surgery.” The decision on the operation will be made in the coming days.
