Manchester City endured a moment of despair as their star player, Kevin De Bruyne, was forced to exit the Champions League final against Inter due to a suspected leg injury in the first half.
De Bruyne’s departure from the game was a result of an apparent hamstring injury, prompting his substitution by Phil Foden. This unfortunate incident marks the second time in a week that De Bruyne has been substituted early, as he was previously taken off during the FA Cup final against Manchester United when the match was in a delicate state.
Nonetheless, Manchester City went on to secure a narrow 1-0 victory, with Rodri’s goal making the difference.
In a post-match interview, De Bruyne expressed his frustration, stating, “It has been a challenging two months. I have been grappling with numerous issues concerning my hamstring, and it finally snapped.”
This is not the first time De Bruyne has encountered injury heartbreak in a Champions League final. In a previous encounter with Chelsea two years ago, he suffered a fractured nose and eye socket following a collision in the first half.
Despite these setbacks, De Bruyne’s contribution has been pivotal to Manchester City’s remarkable season, amassing an impressive tally of 28 assists across various competitions.
Looking ahead, De Bruyne’s departure occurred with the score tied at 0-0, with minimal goal-scoring opportunities in the early minutes of the game. While he is expected to participate in the upcoming celebrations following the team’s triumph, it is undoubtedly bittersweet that he was unable to complete the entire match.
