Why Jurgen Klopp was right on Kevin De Bruyne



Why Jurgen Klopp was right on Kevin De Bruyne

It was never an exaggeration when Jurgen Klopp expressed genuine fear over the return of Kevin De Bruyne.

Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp really knew what he was letting on when he said the premier league and England would be at the mercy of Kevin De Bruyne whenever he made his inevitable comeback.

Inevitable is the word, and even more iconic is the fact that his comeback into the Manchester City squad after months of being absent leaves a lot of concerns for Pep Guardiola’s premier league enemies (so to say).

Manchester City’s title rivals are shaking in their boots as Kevin De Bruyne’s sensational return from injury continues to dominate headlines.

The Belgian midfielder, sidelined for five months due to a serious hamstring injury suffered on the Premier League‘s opening day, has defied expectations with a string of dazzling performances since his comeback.

De Bruyne’s return to action last month was met with apprehension from City fans fearing a diminished player. However, the 32-year-old has swiftly dispelled any doubts, leaving opponents in awe with his commanding presence on the field.

In seven appearances since his comeback, De Bruyne has notched up an impressive tally of one goal and seven assists, with four consecutive Premier League outings featuring his crucial contributions.

His Champions League return against FC Copenhagen saw him make a triumphant mark, netting a goal and providing two assists in City’s 3-1 victory in the first leg of their last-16 tie. With such stellar performances, City are now firm favorites to progress to the quarter-finals.

What’s truly staggering is De Bruyne’s ability to both score and assist, a feat he has achieved twice in his seven post-injury appearances. Remarkably, he has accomplished this more times this season than several Premier League stars combined, despite missing a substantial chunk of action.

As City sit second in the Premier League standings, just two points adrift of leaders Liverpool with a game in hand, the return of De Bruyne has only added to their formidable arsenal (pun intended).

And speaking of arsenal, Arsenal and Liverpool both now have things to worry about now.

The return of Kevin De Bruyne leaves Manchester City with little to no weakness moving forward, and that stands the inevitable truth.
