Manchester City playmaker Kevin De Bruyne has revealed that he was happy to return and has stated that he needed a rest after a long season and Belgium going deep world cup.
Speaking to the club website De Bryune revealed the injury was mostly due to fatigue
“I played the most of anyone last year – in the whole world. And I played the World Cup without a problem.
“I think the most important thing is having a summer break – if you have that you can feel okay, but there is always a time in someone’s career where you feel a bit less.
“But I felt all right, it was just a shame that when I came back after one week, I was out for two-and-a-half months. I was happy to come back and worked really hard but after three games it happened again. So, I think it’s part of your career and in the end it’s just the way it is.
“I think in general people need a good summer break, sometimes we play for 11-and-a-half months at a time and there is not enough time to rest.
“I had a rest of about three weeks – after 12 months of playing. Is that short? Probably, yes. But I felt okay to come back. It’s not a lot to say, I came back and trained and was out after one week – it’s just the way it goes.”
