Belgium manager Domenico Tedesco has paid close attention to Manchester City star Kevin De Bruyne’s recovery from injury, as explained by Friday’s Het Belang van Limburg.

The 32-year-old suffered a hamstring injury in the Citizens’ first league game of the season last August, forcing him to spend the rest of the year on the sidelines.

Last month, the attacking midfielder returned to the pitch in Manchester City’s FA Cup win over Huddersfield Town.

The Belgium international has managed a goal and four assists in his last five games and his return from a hamstring injury has naturally pleased De Rode Duivels manager.

HBVL had a chat with Tedesco about the national team players who changed clubs in the winter market and also about the Manchester City star.

The German coach has heaped praise on Pep Guardiola’s side for the manner in which they handled De Bruyne’s injury situation.

“That makes me very happy indeed. We have followed his recovery process closely and full credit goes to Manchester City for the way they have handled it,” he said.

Tedesco hasn’t given an insight on what exactly Manchester City did for De Bruyne that has pleased him.

He can now count on the player when Belgium take on Republic of Ireland and England in friendlies next month.
