De Bruyne on track for training return


Manchester City midfielder Kevin De Bruyne hopes to return to training before the end of March.

The Belgian has not featured since suffering medial knee ligament and ankle damage against Everton in City's 3-1 Capital One Cup second leg victory over the Everton in January.

He was ruled out for ten weeks but remains hopeful that he will be able to return to training after the international break later this month.

"I hope to be back training with the squad in five weeks, after the international break at the end of March," he told the club's official website.

"Everything's going according to plan. I've already been working cautiously for four weeks now - doing some squats, training my muscles. Now the brace is off, the real work is about to begin."

De Bruyne was in the stands when City defeated Liverpool in the Capital One Cup final on Sunday but he admits he did not enjoy watching from the sidelines.

"It was difficult. I hate sitting in the stands. I'd rather watch a match at home, because once you're in a stadium, you always want to be on the pitch," he elaborated.

"It's a weird feeling to miss a final, but I'm really happy we've won. It's my first trophy over here and hopefully not my last. I only missed this game in this campaign. That happens."
