Manchester City have confirmed that Belgium international Kevin De Bruyne will be out for 3 months. This is because the player suffered a lateral collateral ligament lesion in his right knee.
However, they revealed that the player does not require any surgical procedures for his recovery.
De Bruyne was seen on crutches at the premiere of Manchester City’s new Amazon documentary titled ‘All or Nothing’. This was hours before it was announced that he had sustained an injury in his right knee on Wednesday.
Kyle Walker who reacted to the situation said: “Kevin is a great player and it’s just unfortunate that it’s happened to him in training but there’s more than enough depth in the squad,”
“We don’t just rely on one player. It’s a team game and whoever steps in will do well. Obviously, it’s a big loss but we’ve got more than enough cover.”
The Belgian returned to training on Aug. 6 after helping Belgium to a third-place finish in the Russia 2018 World Cup.
He came on as a substitute in the second half of the Premier League game against Arsenal at the Emirates in a 2 nil win for the Citizens.
