The Belgian Kevin De Bruyne has been named in Manchester City’s team for the Club World Cup, which will take place in Saudi Arabia later this month. However, the Belgian will not be participating in any of the matches that will take place during the event.

After their Premier League match against Crystal Palace on Saturday, December 16, City will travel to the Gulf state. They will play their semi-final match in Jeddah on Tuesday, December 19, against either Club Leon of Mexico or Urawa Red Diamonds of Japan. Following that, on Friday, December 22, there will be either a final or a play-off between third and fourth place.

Since he suffered a hamstring injury on the first day of the season, De Bruyne has not participated in any games for City. He underwent surgery to treat the ailment shortly after it occurred. Just recently, Pep Guardiola revealed that his captain would not return until the month of January.

A couple of weeks ago, Guardiola provided an update that was quite similar to what De Bruyne had stated during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. De Bruyne had stated that he did not anticipate returning until January.

According to Guardiola, “If he said January, it will be January,” he would say. “I would have loved to have him all season but now he has tough injury and surgery and he said end of December or New Year, so it will be a happy New Year for everyone.”
