Manchester City may present a star-studded line-up for Champions League as captain Kevin de Bruyne has recovered from hamstring injury.
De Bruyne has already returned to training with Manchester City. And now he’s properly training again, allaying fears that he could miss the Champions League final.
After missing a few games due to a hamstring injury, the City captain will play the final Premier League matches.
The Belgium midfielder missed City’s last two matches with a muscle injury. However, de Bruyne has recovered from hamstring injury fully, after two months of recovering.
Indeed, de Bruyne, who has been named in the Belgium squad for Euro 2020, will play Tuesday’s match against Brighton.
So, it’s likely that he will also play for the European final in Porto just 12 days away.
In fact, he is part of the training that the new Premier League winners have stepped up, in their preparation for their first Champions League final, against Chelsea.
“Kevin has trained the last two days and he feels good,” his manager Pep Guardiola said in his news conference.
“Kevin is important like everyone,” the City coach continued. “When we are able to stick together and push each other, it will be possible to win [the Champions League].”
“Everyone is in the same level,” he said. “We’ll see what his level is, he’s fit and ready to play.”
