Kevin De Bruyne, the captain of Manchester City, made a comeback to training which raised hope among fans eager just by seeing him back on the pitch. The Belgian playmaker who was recovering from a hamstring injury was seen training alongside the team prior to their FIFA Club World Cup game against Urawa Red Diamonds.
De Bruyne is returning to training after reports of him undergoing solo training on grass in the recent days which is a positive progress for his recovery and even though it’s a positive step, the City supporters are doubting whether the 32-year-old is fully prepared for match action.
But also Pep Guardiola is fully aware of the importance of managing De Bruyne’s comeback in a way to avoid any challenges despite anticipation of De Bruyne’s return after the midfielder’s extended absence due to injury.
The City manager is avoiding taking unnecessary risks with De Bruyne’s fitness especially given his hamstring injury but however, the midfielder is included in the squad for the FIFA Club World Cup which gives hope for him playing in the game against Urawa Red Diamonds.
The City fans are eagerly waiting for more updates on De Bruyne’s situation and the manager’s decision on his potential participation in the coming games.
