Man city boss Pep Guardiola reveals hamstring injury for Kevin De Bruyne

Kevin de Bruyne finished the game as an unused substitute.

Man City boss Pep Guardiola has talked about the injury concern of Kevin de Bruyne. He didn’t feature in a previous Premier League game against Brentford. He made a comeback this winter after a long-term injury and now, missed two matches.

Pep Guardiola has revealed that Kevin has a hamstring issue. Not just him, Nathan Ake and Jeremy Doku were also dropped down to the bench. Man City preferred John Stones, Bernardo Silva and Oscar Bobb to take their respective places in the starting XI.

Man City went on to win the game due to the solo goal from Erling Haaland. They are now second in the table in the Premier League. De Bruyne finished the game as an unused substitute.

Guardiola told reporters, “We did not use Kevin today because he has niggles in his hamstring position. He’s okay. It’s more caution and prevention than anything.

“He didn’t feel comfortable and the doctors said there was a little bit of risk. After five months off, we did not take any risk with that.”

The Belgium international has made a total of 10 competitive appearances since coming back into the fold, contributing two goals and eight assists.
