Kevin De Bruyne worries it could take six months before he completely recovers from a dread injury.

Kevin De Bruyne has revealed he is still incapable to “feel anything on the left side” of his face and suggested it could take six months to recover from the injury he sustained in the Champions League final.

The Manchester City starlet made his first appearance at Euro 2020, as he came off the bench to spur Belgium to a come-from-behind victory over Denmark in Copenhagen.

De Bruyne missed the Red Devils’ opener against Russia, with the 29-year-old still recuperating from the fractured nose and eye socket he suffered in last month’s masterpiece.

His participation in this summer’s championships were thrown into major dilemma after he was forced out of the Chelsea encounter after a clash with Antonio Rudiger.

It was finally revealed he had suffered major facial fractures, similar to the ones picked up by boxer Billy Joe Saunders in his recent loss to Canelo Alvarez.


Belgium manager Roberto Martinez explained his star midfielder had been given the green light to play against Denmark and he confirmed he was more than ready with a remarkable cameo off the bench.

With his side 1-0 down, De Bruyne fired a second-half comeback, creating the first goal for Thorgen Hazard before scoring a thumping winner at the end of a flowing move.

But in the aftermath of the win, he confirmed that he is still feeling the effects of the injury and anticipates to do so for the remainder of 2021.

“I don’t feel anything on the left side, like after a visit to the dentist,” De Bruyne told ESPN. “My nerve is very badly affected, which could take six months. It’s not a comfortable feeling, but the most important thing is that I can play.

“The last two months have been up and down for me with minor injuries. After that fracture in the nose and eye socket, it was a bit of a wait.

“But luckily I came back in the fastest way. There was very good intensity for half an hour, [against Denmark] then I felt it. But I’m glad I was able to play.”

De Bruyne is presumed to be given another run-out in their final group game against Finland in St Petersburg but has honestly claimed he has still yet to fully recover confidence in duels against opponents.

He continued:
” My performance was OK. In duels I am sometimes afraid to put my head in it, but that’s normal.

“I’m glad I could help the team, but am I ready to play 90 minutes? No idea.

“We have to wait and see how my body reacts and then we’ll see after Finland. We are already qualified, so we can see how my body reacts.”
