Kevin De Bruyne suffers "knee ligament" injury in training


Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne has suffered a serious knee injury which may rule him out of action for at least two months.

The Belgian was one of the key components within Pep Guardiola's Manchester City side last season that romped to the Premier League title, breaking nearly every record along the way.

De Bruyne is understood to have torn the ligaments in his right knee in what is described as a freak accident.

Man City have confirmed on their official website that De Bruyne is undergoing tests on a knee injury and are waiting for more updates.

City will certainly miss the 27-year-old, but have a wealth of options for the position he usually occupies.

According to, De Bruyne faces around two months out after suffering the injury when he caught his studs in the turf before leaving the training ground on crutches.

"So I hope this one will be similar, especially in terms of the way we play and in terms of winning".

City do, however, have David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Gundogan who can offset his loss in midfield.

"He is very important".

Gundogan and Fernandinho were speaking at the world premiere of All or Nothing: Manchester City, available on Amazon Prime Video from Thursday.
