Kevin de Bruyne undergoes successful eye surgery

Kevin de Bruyne underwent a minor surgery and will rejoin squad on Monday.

The Belgian international had minor surgery on his eye socket as he was injured in the Champions League final following a collision with Antonio Rudiger.

There were concerns that he could miss this summer’s European Championship but the small surgery made him available for international duty.

His recovery will be a huge relief for Roberto Martinez’s side who will be aiming for their first European title this season.

“It went very well, very positively. We are looking forward to Monday when he will join our squad,” Martinez told reporters.

“That small intervention was necessary with a view to the long term. He will not need a long recovery.

“The operation only took 20 minutes. The medical staff is satisfied with the result. De Bruyne is now doing well, that’s all.”
