The damage to the ankle ligament followed the fractured skull and eye socket. He came back from injury and played through the pain barrier, becoming a fitness concern for Manchester City. His campaign began with the end of his Euro 2020, with a fitness concern for De Bruyne. In his 12 minutes of defeat on Sunday in Tottenham, he made a faster than expected recovery – another recurrent theme. But he missed Friday’s training, leaving Pep Guardiola unsure whether Saturday his talisman would meet Norwich. It’s the first time since a De Bruyne master class against West Ham in February 2020 that Etihad stadium is packed, but he could be a viewer as his starting year continues. He’s here.
Injuries In champion league
In the finale of the Champions League, De Bruyne was forced to limp out of the victory over Portugal in Belgium after facial injuries suffered in a full-blood collision with Antonio Rüdiger. However, five days later, he began his quarter-final against Italy, but playing with ripped ligaments. There are still issues. “With his ankle, Kevin has some trouble,” said Guardiola.
Injuries were interrupted last season too. Guardiola called him from the bench to prevent the Spur’s defeat but could manage the De Bruyne games. The City Manager said that he must be fit and be good. “They always have disturbing pain at a certain age of players. Belgium’s triple head of the qualifying world cup loomed in September, and Guardiola said: “I’d like all players to go to the national team when all of them are fit. They’re all free and free, so there are difficult parts in their careers. If they are not fit or wounded, they will stay here otherwise.” And this is a real fitness concern for Manchester City.
The demands for Uefa’s best player are highest, and the current PFA Player of the Year has been nominated for this week. If the body of Bruyne takes over, maybe it’s no surprise: in 2017-18, he played 68 club and country games. He had 576 senior appointments at 30.
He’s not overworked alone, either. Raheem Sterling and Rúben Dias played 75 games in 13 months before the end of Euro 2020, although partly because of an artificially congested list of fixtures. However, Guardiola told his accusations not to complain about the schedule but that they had no day to waste in their days.
The seasons are linked,” he said. “They’re not stopping. The careers of all the players are short: 10 years or 12 years or 15 years. Unfortunately, this is the truth. Until I’m 80 years old, I may be a manager. Until you’re 80 years old, you can only be a player. Two or twenty-six are left to play soccer for five or six years.
“My advice is to use your career every day as best you can because then you can break out if you wish for 1 or 2 or 3 years.” Guardiola sounded, at least, relaxed after a resting summer. “We have five or six weeks in the backroom staff, so we can’t complain,” he adds.
Improvement In Health
A month after their summer work, he gave his England and Brazil internationals a break. With reverse defaults in the Community Shield and Premier League, a suitably weakened city began. Guardiola has listed the improvement areas he has seen in Spurs.
One of them is Jack Grealish, who was the chief creator of the absence of De Bruyne. They formed a fan club, but the life of the £100 million men in the City began successively.”Jack’s team will support him, and he will help us to become the team that we want to be,” Guardiola committed. This site, despite speculation, will not include Robert Lewandowski. “It’s going to keep him in Bavaria Munich,” the former manager of Bavaria said.
He starts the sixth camp in the City. “I have to reduce my handicap, absolutely not,” said a keen golfer with a famous friend. As a good professor, I’ve got Tommy Fleetwood, so I got some drills. Once a year, we play. His program is busier than mine.”
