Manchester City’s Belgian playmaker Kevin de Bruyne has been ruled out for up to three months following suffering a horrific knee injury during training.

He is reported to have hurt the Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL) in his right knee.

He was spotted on crutches attending the first showing of City’s ‘All or Nothing’ documentary at The Printworks in Manchester City Centre.
