Kevin Bruyne Injury update.

Belgium international De Bruyne is set to undergo a scan on Monday to determine the extent of his injury.

Reportedly, Kevin de Bruyne is scheduled for a scan on Monday to assess the extent of his most recent injury, according to the Athletic.

This comes after the midfielder had to leave the pitch during Manchester City's Premier League opener against Burnley on Friday night.

The Cityzens started the new season strongly, beating Vincent Kompany's newly-promoted Burnley 3-0 at Turf Moor. However, there's concern surrounding De Bruyne as he was forced to exit the game in the first half.

In the 23rd minute, the Belgian midfield maestro went down and was replaced by new signing Mateo Kovacic due to a suspected reoccurrence of a hamstring injury, causing him to leave the first match of the 2023-24 Premier League season early.

Following the match, City manager Pep Guardiola confirmed that De Bruyne might have worsened the same hamstring injury that had previously caused him to miss the Champions League final against Inter Milan.

The details of his previous hamstring issue were not widely discussed as City's players departed for their celebrations after winning the Treble and their summer holidays following their victory in Istanbul.

It is believed De Bruyne had suffered a significant hamstring tear, and while he didn't need surgery, he did require substantial rest before making his return for pre-season training.
