Kevin De Bruyne and family fell ill – but he doesn’t know if it was Coronavirus!


Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne who is recovering from an illness during these testing times, reckons that he is unsure if he had coronavirus or not! The Belgian midfielder and his family suddenly fell ill two weeks ago, and by his own words, “we don’t know if we had coronavirus or not”

“I am doing well, to be honest,” De Bruyne said in an interview. “The first two weeks my family was sick so it was a little bit like up and down, but now they are all healthy. We don’t know if we had it (coronavirus) or not but I think we’re doing well now.”

The 2019-20 Premier League season has been postponed indefinitely due to the ongoing global pandemic, and KDB revealed that he is trying to stay fit and sharp by exercising and training at home.

“Well, the first two weeks was a little bit weird because I don’t know what’s going on,” De Bruyne said.

“Then I managed to get a treadmill. I was swimming a little bit because I’m lucky to have a pool downstairs.

“I was doing a couple of lengths but now mostly I’m doing a run and I would say every other day I would choose between swimming and doing some exercise, so I’m keeping fairly good for what we can on our own, I guess.”

When asked whether his club knows about his training routine, De Bruyne replied, “They send us like a fairly big programme.

“I think at the beginning of lockdown some of the gym physios went to the club and made videos of what we can do, different types of exercises. But there’s a few things that I like to do, obviously it’s more the running and the swimming exercise.”

“I do a little bit in-between but I’m not one for sitting like an hour or two hours in a gym. I get bored of doing stuff on my own anyway so I prefer to do running, where I keep busy for myself and listen to some podcasts and all that stuff” he added.
