Kevin De Bruyne suffers knee injury at Manchester City training

Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has suffered a serious injury in training, according to Kristof Terreur.

"The extent of the problem is not yet known and we will bring you further updates on Kevin's condition in due course".

The Belgian was one of, if not the, most important players for Pep Guardiola's Citizens last season as he racked up 12 goals and 21 assists on their way to a 100-point campaign in the Premier League.

On that occasion, De Bruyne missed 10 weeks of action - including the 2015-16 EFL Cup final - and City's title challenge subsequently collapsed.


The Belgium worldwide who starred in last season's Premier League title win is believed to have torn the lateral collateral ligament in his right knee.

The worst case scenario for De Bruyne would be a cruciate ligament injury - the same injury suffered by Liverpool's Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - which, at the very least, requires a nine month recovery period.

He was a second-half substitute in the 2-0 Premier League-opening victory over Arsenal on Sunday, coming on in the 60th minute.

City do, however, have David Silva, Bernardo Silva and Gundogan who can offset his loss in midfield.
