‘He’s not injured he was just Sick’… Pep Guardiola confirms £54m Man City player is almost back to his best

Guardiola confirms £54 million. Player for Man City is nearly back to peak form.
One of Manchester City’s best players has received an encouraging injury update from Pep Guardiola.

Thanks to a late goal by Erling Haaland, Manchester City defeated Brentford 1-0 on Tuesday to get back to their winning ways.

With the win, Pep Guardiola’s team moved up to second place in the Premier League, just one point behind champions Liverpool. If City defeats Bournemouth on Saturday, they might move up to the top spot as well.

This weekend, instead of playing in the league, Jurgen Klopp’s team will play Chelsea in the Carabao Cup final.

This presents City with an enormous chance on the south coast, and it appears like Kevin De Bruyne may be engaged.

Guardiola said that the talented Belgian did not even get up to warm up for Tuesday’s match, choosing instead to sit on the bench due to a hamstring ache.

Although the Blues manager didn’t want to take a chance on De Bruyne so soon after his long absence, he did provide a good report on Friday.

On the bench was Kevin De Bruyne.

Regarding Kevin De Bruyne, Pep Guardiola gives an update.
Guardiola stated at his pre-game press conference, “Good, he’s not injured.” Better.

“I think we made the right choice, but I’m not sure if he’s 100%. [Avoid playing him] Don’t take a chance.

“Aside from the outcome, if it wasn’t excellent, people would wonder why Kevin De Bruyne didn’t play, but I believe we made the choice because he wasn’t at ease.

“I’m not sure; our training is at four.” He came and trained for himself yesterday, but we’ll evaluate and make a decision today, and I’m fairly sure he’ll go.”

He will soon turn 33 years old, and over the past five years, he has sustained multiple catastrophic injuries. That indicates extensive wear and tear.

At this stage of their career, you have to control a player’s productivity and fitness carefully to avoid permanently burning them out.

De Bruyne is an incredible player when he’s on the pitch, as demonstrated by his play since making a comeback. However, if City overworks him, they risk him not playing for very long.

The £54 million player missed the first half of the season after returning from his previous hamstring injury too soon at the beginning of the year.

The wisest course of action is undoubtedly to just say “easy does it,” but happily it seems like his ailment is getting better.
