Kevin De Bruyne will be present at Tubize on Monday and in the team for the Euro, ”he added.
“We decided on Friday, after seeing the images, that a small intervention was necessary. This is not a full orbit operation but more of a measure to avoid long term problems. It lasted 20 minutes and everything went very well. Kevin is doing well, he is happy and in a good state of mind, ”said the national coach.
“Kevin De Bruyne may not even need to play with a mask. This is really good news because it will speed up the process, help his return. From a medical point of view, we will continue to assess his situation day after day. This intervention does not change the date of his return, ”added the Catalan. As a reminder, the Manchester City captain should not play the Devils first match at the Euro, against Russia on June 12.
