Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has sustained a knee injury during training yesterday. This injury may rule him out for two to four months according to sources close to the Belgian. The full extent of the injury has not been discovered yet and the 27-year old is undergoing tests.
Manchester City released a statement that read, “Kevin De Bruyne is undergoing tests on his right knee after sustaining an injury at training on Wednesday. The extent of the problem is not yet known and we will bring you further updates on Kevin’s condition in due course.”
De Bruyne did not start City’s Premier League opener against Arsenal. However, he came on as a substitute for Riyad Mahrez at the hour mark. He is now seriously doubtful for Manchester City’s match against Huddersfield Town on Sunday.
This isn’t the first time the 27-year old has sustained a knee injury. Two and a half years back, De Bruyne injured his knee during a League Cup match against Everton. That injury ruled him out for almost three months.
