Kevin De Bruyne‘s return from injury was the best New Year’s gift for Manchester City. The Belgian international not only revitalized his domestic side with his availability but also gave the Cityzens a reason to believe, for the remainder of the season. While one thinks his five months of recuperation must have been painful, KDB rather had a ‘normal life‘, as he was ‘able to experience different moments‘.

The off-pitch time was no less than a rejuvenation period for Kevin De Bruyne, who spent quality moments with his family. While speaking to the club’s official website, he said, “A bit more normal, relax a bit. During rehab, I had a very normal life.” The 32-year-old revealed that he used to train during the day and in the evening he’d spend time with his two sons and daughter. It not only ‘calmed down‘ Kevin De Bruyne’s body but also made him go on a holiday in October, which is normally not possible. 

Aside from going to Abu Dhabi’s F1 GP, he also went for a getaway weekend in East England. “I was able to experience different moments with the children too or go out with friends. For example, we went to Suffolk for a weekend. In the east of England, close to the sea. There we did a scavenger hunt, a search for hidden treasures. And yes, it was fun to do something like that,” he concluded. From the looks of it, these five months were a vacation that Kevin De Bruyne needed after all these years. Now, the player is looking forward to serving Manchester City.

In the same interview, Kevin De Bruyne despised the tight schedules, which sadly increased the chances of injury. While asserting the schedule was his major problem, he said, “We live from match to match, have to play every three days. We always have to recover from those efforts, we don’t have time to train. Never time to really strengthen your body properly.”

Let’s hope he can keep up his fitness for the remainder of the season and lead Pep Guardiola and Co. to glory.

One take at a time

I first kicked a soccer ball when I was 12. My early exposure to playing the sport earned me many accolades at the zonal and district levels. I still remember my first goal, where I scored a 90+5 minute header like Sergio Ramos did in the 2014 Champions League final against Atletico Madrid.
