Kevin De Bruyne has tested positive for Covid and is expected to miss the next three games.

Kevin De Bruyne, Manchester City’s star midfielder, has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss the club’s next three matches.

Kevin De Bruyne, a Manchester City midfielder, has tested positive for Covid-19 and will miss the club’s next three games.

On Wednesday, after Belgium’s World Cup qualifiers against Estonia and Wales, Pep Guardiola confirmed that the star had tested positive.

De Bruyne, 30, played in both games as Roberto Martinez’s team qualified for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

However, he has been ruled out of City’s Premier League match against Everton on Sunday due to a positive test, and he will self-isolate.

He’ll also miss Paris Saint-Germain’s crucial Champions League match on November 24.

The vaccinated midfielder is expected to miss City’s match against West Ham at the Etihad Stadium four days later.

“He told me he was positive two days ago.

Guardiola told reporters on Friday, “I think he’s here (in England).”

“Forget about fitness and momentum; he’s confident now that he just needs to rest.”

“We have to be cautious because Covid is killing people. He has been vaccinated, so hopefully he will be fine.”

“Rhythm is unimportant; the human being is.”

After suffering an ankle injury during Euro 2020, De Bruyne has had a hit-or-miss start to the season.

He didn’t make his first Premier League start until late September against Chelsea, but he looked back to his old self almost immediately.

In the early months of the season, he has been a mainstay in the team, as City battled it out with the Blues and Liverpool.

His last appearance for the Cityzens came in a 2-0 win over Manchester City on Derby Day.

City will be without him for the next three games, which is a huge blow at this stage of the season.

The Premier League champions have 12 games in the top flight and in Europe in just 41 days.

Feran Torres will be absent, and Jack Grealish is expected to miss the weekend trip to Goodison Park.

“We have Jack getting better after he went to the national team,” Guardiola continued.

“Phil Foden returned to the team with a knock and a leg problem, but he is improving.”
