City released a statement confirming the De Bruyne's injury but didn't elaborate on the seriousness of the problem.

Manchester City midfielder Kevin de Bruyne could face a spell on the sidelines after injuring his right knee in training, the Premier League champions said Wednesday.

A club statement said the full extent of the injury is not yet known but the Belgium global was undergoing tests.

The former Chelsea man was photographed wearing a knee brace and using crutches while at the premiere of City's Amazon documentary series.

"So I hope this one will be similar, especially in terms of the way we play and in terms of winning".

But the importance of De Bruyne, easily the club's best player in the record-breaking 2017/18 season, can not be overstated. "Obviously it's a big loss but we've got more than enough cover".

"He is very important".

In 2016, De Bruyne missed out on 12 games after suffering an injury in the League Cup against Everton.

The Belgian was one of the key components within Pep Guardiola's Manchester City side last season that romped to the Premier League title, breaking nearly every record along the way.
