Manchester City coach Giuseppe Guardiola revealed, on Friday, that the injury will keep Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne out of action for up to six weeks.

De Bruyne suffered a muscle injury nearly an hour after City’s victory over Aston Villa in the middle of the week in the Premiership competitions, and the tests that the player underwent revealed that he may need six weeks to recover.

De Bruyne will miss important dates for City next month against defending champion Liverpool and Tottenham, with his first match away from the team on Saturday in the fourth round of the Cup competition against Cheltenham Town in the third division.

Guardiola, whose team ranks second in the league, two points behind his neighbor Man United, with a postponed match up his sleeve, on the eve of the cup match, said: “Doctors said they will review the x-ray examination today (Friday), and this is what they did, and thus the result came that (the period of absence) will be between Four and six weeks. ”

“We have to move forward,” he stressed. I don’t say anything that no one knows about his importance to us, but unfortunately for him and for us he will miss an important part of the season. We have to find solutions because everyone is suffering and we have to cope. ”
