Kevin De Bruyne returned to the pitch for Manchester City during a match against the Championship side, Huddersfield, first time since August 11 when he injured his hamstring during the first Premier League clash of the season with Burley.
The Belgian was a big missed for Pep Guardiola’s men on the pitch, however, while his team were missing him, the midfielder was busy focussing on a new job he got as a result of the injury.
Speaking after the match against Huddersfield, Kevin De Bruyne revealed that he could describe his job during the recovery process as a ‘taxi driver.’ He claimed that he had enough time to spend with his family and he became a taxi driver for his kids.
“I could go on holiday, which is never possible normally during the year. Maybe it was good to refresh a little bit. It was nice to bring my son and daughter to their practices and see their games. When you have three kids between three and seven, I’m basically a taxi driver.”
The midfielder said he feels good at this moment, although he is not expecting to be in the starting line-up of every match because he still needs to take care of himself and be fit 100 percent.
“I feel good, the movements were good (against Huddersfield), I felt comfortable in what I was doing,’ he said.
“That was the only thing I was really looking for. There will be moments I want to play every game but I know in the back of my mind I need to take care of myself.”
Kevin De Bruyne further denied the claim that his failure to have proper rest and recovery process after tearing a muscle in the Champions League final was the reason for the injury against Burley. However, despite that, Pep Guardiola will be careful in managing him to avoid another injury setback.
