Kevin De Bruyne has expressed his delight at returning to training for Manchester City.
As the Premier League makes it return on Boxing Day, Pep Guardiola’s side will have eyes on eventually reaching the top of the table.
The defending champions are currently 5 points adrift of Arsenal, who are dominating proceedings in the English top-flight.
And the way Mikel Arteta’s side are going, it does not look like they are set to stop anytime soon.
As a result, the Sky Blues will have to revert to their machinic consistency during the second half of the season to become the champions of England.
And a pivotal figure in the club’s pursuit for 3 league titles is a row will be none other than De Bruyne, who arguably remains the side’s best player.
Famously this campaign, two of the former VFL Wolfsburg talisman’s two screamers were nominated for the Premier League Goal of the Month.
It seems as if the midfield maestro is happy to be back training at the club he joined back in 2015.
Kevin De Bruyne is delighted to be back in training
Kevin De Bruyne took to Twitter to post two pictures of himself training with Manchester City, captioned “back home.”
For any Sky Blues fans out there, this would be a sight for sore eyes as the decorated midfielder has been in cracking touch this campaign, with 9 league assists and 3 goals.
To watch De Bruyne do what he does best in a City shirt must have been a sight craved by the entire fanbase.
The Sky Blues legend can silence all his critics during Belgium’s World Cup exit
In an interview with the Guardian, Kevin De Bruyne candidly rubbished Belgium’s chances of winning the World Cup by saying the team was “too old.”
However, the Belgian playmaker quickly learned that sometimes, honesty is not the best policy as his statement drew tons of criticism.
Many felt the former Chelsea wonderkid was harsh towards his national teammates, and that a leader in the side such as himself should inspire others to go for glory.
To make matters worse for himself, De Bruyne endured a poor tournament by his lofty standards.
As Manchester City are looming closer to returning to action, Kevin De Bruyne can right his wrongs.
