Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne may very well be out of motion for as much as six weeks, supervisor Pep Guardiola stated Friday. The Belgium star limped off simply earlier than the hour within the midweek victory over Aston Villa with a muscular grievance. A scan revealed the extent of the damage, with De Bruyne now set to overlook key Premier League matches towards Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur subsequent month in addition to Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie at Cheltenham.
“The doctor said we’ll review the scan today (Friday) which we’ve done and it will be between four and six weeks out,” Guardiola informed a information convention.
“We have to move forward. I’m not saying anything nobody knows about how important it is, but unfortunately for him and all of us, he is out for an important part of the season.
“We must discover a resolution as everyone seems to be struggling and we now have to adapt.”
Meanwhile, Kyle Walker will also miss the Cup tie at fourth-tier Cheltenham after he too was forced off the field after suffering a injury against Villa.
But Guardiola was more upbeat about Walker’s prospects, saying: “Kyle had a huge impact kick in his hips, but it surely was only a kick. He’s not out there tomorrow however perhaps for the following sport.”
Sergio Aguero has been dominated out of Saturday’s match as properly after the striker revealed on Thursday he had examined optimistic for the coronavirus.
Guardiola added: “What we want is for him (Aguero) to really feel higher. He felt uncomfortable for 2 or three days after his optimistic check, he felt fairly drained and had signs. But he feels properly and we wish him to return again.
“For a long time we’ve missed our best striker. Like with Kevin we will have to manage until they come back.”
