Man City fans react to Kevin De Bruyne’s injury update

During the latter stages of Manchester City’s comfortable 2-0 win against Fulham in the Carabao Cup last night, Manchester United loanee, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, appeared to land on Kevin de Bruyne’s left knee.

It was the Belgian’s first start for two months, as he had just returned to full fitness following an injury to his right knee at the start of the season, as Pep Guardiola’s side ran out comfortable 2-0 winners over Fulham to reach the quarter-finals of the competition they won last season.

And The Daily Telegraph have exclusively reported that De Bruyne could be out for a month, meaning he misses next weekend’s Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium, as well as potentially five other games.

Unsurprisingly, this recent injury update has stimulated quite a reaction from several City fans on Twitter, with some feeling, given that they have retained their spot at the top of the Premier League without De Bruyne, they can manage just fine again in his absence…

Dr Ramon Cugat, an independent doctor in Barcelona, has performed surgery on many City players during Guardiola’s reign, and multiple Citizens fans feel that he can get De Bruyne back ahead of schedule, just like he did last time…

Yet, despite the jokes, many City fans will be as disappointed as the player himself…

And one Manchester United fan even showed sympathy towards De Bruyne’s misfortune with injuries…

Man City fans… what do you think? Let us know!
