Manchester City: Fans go wild over Kevin De Bruyne update

Manchester City: Fans go wild over Kevin De Bruyne update -Manchester City News

Flocking to Twitter, many Manchester City supporters have erupted over news on their star Kevin De Bruyne.

The 30-year-old has been missing from action over the last three games with manager Pep Guardiola confirming in late November that he had contracted COVID-19 (talkSPORT).

Testing positive on international duty with Belgium last month, De Bruyne has undergone a period of self-isolation to recover from the virus and eventually be available for selection once again.

The playmaker, still yet to rediscover his best form at club level this season, was absent for City’s recent home victories against Everton, Paris-Saint Germain and West Ham United.

However, in an update, Guardiola has now confirmed that the Sky Blues star has tested negative for COVID-19 after taking his latest test.

While he still hasn’t trained, with City’s boss emphasising he needs time, the Spaniard says De Bruyne ‘will be back’ eventually as he edges he closer to being eligible for selection.

Man City fans go wild…

Even though he is still to commence first team training again, you can see why many Sky Blues are overjoyed that De Bruyne has tested negative with the comeback trail on.

Guardiola spoke of a player selection ‘emergency‘ due to his lack of options and the Belgium international’s anticipated eventual return will come as a big boost.

Still yet to see his very best so far this year, it’s clear City’s highest-paid player is very much an embodiment of the phrase ‘form is temporary, class is permanent’.

Making the PFA Team of the Year last season due to his stellar contribution, the midfield maestro’s 2019/2020 season is perhaps an even better indication of his quality.

Scoring 13 goals and notching a phenomenal 20 assists in the Premier League that year (WhoScored), if Guardiola can reignite that form when De Bruyne is made available again, then City will be boosted majorly.
