Manchester City and Belgium midfielder Kevin de Bruyne suffered a fractured nose and eye socket in the Champions League final against Chelsea. The former Chelsea player sustained an injury in the second half of the game and was replaced by Brazilian forward Gabriel Jesus.
Update on Kevin de Bruyne’s Injury
The 29-year-old was tweeted a day after the game on his personal Twitter account, saying he is better. According to him, he tweeted: “I feel OK now. Still disappointed about yesterday, obviously, but we will be back.” Kevin De Bruyne was named in the Belgium squad for Euro 2020, with his country’s first game on June 12 against Russia.
There are no indications yet if he will be fit for the first match, which will be in St Petersburg, or if his injuries threaten his participation in the Euros. Rudiger, who injured him, took to his own Twitter handle on Sunday afternoon to reveal he had been in touch with the City captain, and he wished him a quick recovery.
The German posted: “I’m really sorry for @DeBruyneKev’s injury.” “Of course, this was not intentional from me. I’ve already been in touch with Kevin personally, and I really wish him a speedy recovery and hope we can see him back on the pitch very soon again.”
