Kevin De Bruyne suffered numerous facial fractures during the Champions League final on Saturday.
It was a blow to “Citizens”. The Manchester City midfielder had to leave the field in the second half. Shortly before playing time, he collided with Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger. De Bruyne had visible bruises on his face. He was quickly replaced by Gabriel Jesus.
The Belgian announced on social media on Sunday how serious his injury is.
– Hi, I just got back from the hospital. My diagnosis is a sharp fracture of the nasal bone and a fracture of the left eye socket. I feel good now. Still disappointed after yesterday of course, but we’ll be back – wrote De Bruyne.
