If all goes according to plan, Kevin De Bruyne has revealed his projected return date from injury.
When Kevin De Bruyne might recover from his injury has been disclosed.
De Bruyne was questioned by Sky Sports F1 during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix regarding his expected return to full fitness following his injury sustained against Burnley at the beginning of the season.
The Belgian international has been replaced by Julian Alvarez as the Sky Blues’ No. 10.
According to Kevin De Bruyne, his injury may heal shortly after the new year.
The 32-year-old is in the “final phase” of his recuperation process, according to Pep Guardiola’s statement from November, before he can resume first-team training.
The Catalan strategist, though, did not specify a return date since he believes it is difficult to do so in the case of such severe injuries.
However, Kevin De Bruyne, a legend of Manchester City, has since stated that he may be able to overcome his injury and play again shortly after the New Year.
“I’m getting along just well. I’m getting there, but I still have a little way to go. If all goes according to plan, I’m hoping shortly after New Year’s,” he said to Sky Sports F1.
The best news imaginable from Manchester City’s standpoint
As Glenn Hoddle stated, Kevin De Bruyne is still Manchester City’s “best player” despite his injury and extended absence.
In what was yet another outstanding individual season, the former VFL Wolfsburg midfielder demonstrated why he is up there with the world’s finest players last season.
The Sky Blues have been impacted by the triple winner’s absence since he is an indispensable member of the team and perhaps the best creative of his generation.
Although Julian Alvarez has done a good job filling in for Erling Haaland, he lacks Kevin De Bruyne’s passing range and vision.
The prospect that the midfield maestro could return in January should excite Manchester City fans everywhere, since he also has a tendency to be at his best towards the conclusion of the season.
