Kevin De Bruyne has revealed he won’t be sidelined for much longer at Man City as he had some downtime at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

The Belgian midfielder has been injured and out of action since August due to a hamstring injury.

He is currently continuing his rehabilitation and has taken time to attend the Formula 1 season finale in Abu Dhabi.

When asked when he thinks he can make his return to football, he said he hopes to be back in early 2024.

Things are going well, things are going well together. There is still a little way to go, but we will get there,” he told Sky Sports.

“Hopefully I’ll be back in the area after New Year’s, if all goes well.”

During the race event, De Bruyne was filmed taking part in a TikTok dance with Noelgoescrazy.

It left fans laughing as they joked about his moves, with one person writing on social media: ‘I’m crying.’

De Bruyne has made 240 appearances for City since signing in 2015, scoring 64 goals for the club.

Pep Guradiola’s side will be hoping for a quick return for the Belgian after the 1-1 draw at home to Liverpool this weekend.
