Manchester City fans react to Kevin de Bruyne injury news

Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne will be out for the next few months with a suspected knee ligament injury and is to be treated by specialists in Barcelona, as reported by the Manchester Evening News.

This injury is bitter news to swallow for the player, club and fans alike. Last season, the Belgian was instrumental in City’s Premier League title triumph and will have been hoping to pick up where he left off this time around. 

City boss Pep Guardiola is fortunate to have a squad stocked with enough top level talent to cope with the 27-year-old’s absence. The likes of Bernardo Silva, David Silva, Ilkay Gundogan and Riyad Mahrez could all step into De Bruyne’s breach effectively.

Young star Phil Foden may even hope to gain some further experience and playing time as part of the cover plan whilst De Bruyne is sidelined.

In the wake of the injury news, many Man City fans took to Twitter to wish De Bruyne well and express their faith in the squad to rise to this crisis.
