Shocking Update on Kevin De Bruyne's Hamstring Injury - Will He Be Ready for the Start of the 2023-24 Season? 49




  • Belgian forced off against Inter
  • Will not have to undergo surgery
  • Could be back for Super Cup clash

WHAT HAPPENED? The Manchester City midfielder was forced off during the first half of a European showpiece in Istanbul on June 10 that saw Pep Guardiola’s side complete a historic Treble. De Bruyne has, according to the Daily Star, suffered a Grade Three hamstring tear and will remain sidelined for the foreseeable future as a result.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: The problem will not require surgery, but De Bruyne – who has been spotted holidaying with Virgil van Dijk and Nathan Ake during the summer break – has been advised to rest before starting his rehabilitation in earnest from July.

AND WHAT’S MORE: De Bruyne will be unavailable for City’s clash with Arsenal in the Community Shield on August 6 and a Premier League opener against Vincent Kompany’s newly-promoted Burnley on August 11. City’s medical team hope that the Belgium international will be ready to play some part – potentially off the bench – when Guardiola’s men face Sevilla in the UEFA Super Cup on August 16.
