Kevin DeBruyne out on the sideline for three weeks after suffering training ground injury

Manchester City’s stars showed up in numbers for the premiere of ‘All Or Nothing’, the new Amazon series documenting their 2017-2018 title-winning triumph – with Kevin De Bruyne on crutches after suffering a training ground injury earlier on Wednesday.

The Belgian midfielder, dressed in a dark hoody and trousers, sported a brace on his right leg after undergoing scans on the injury.

Sportsmail understands there are fears De Bruyne has torn a lateral ligament in his right knee and City are worried their playmaker could miss up to three months.

At the premiere, City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan said of De Bruyne: ‘He played an incredible season. He had so much impact on our game. He was maybe the main man for us last season.

‘He is very important. We all hope that it is not too serious so he can get back on the training field as soon as possible.’

City and England right-back Kyle Walker said: ‘Kevin is a great player and it’s just unfortunate that it’s happened to him in training but there’s more than enough depth in the squad.

‘We don’t just rely on one player. It’s a team game and whoever steps in will do well. Obviously it’s a big loss but we’ve got more than enough cover.’
The 27-year-old will undergo further tests to examine the extent of the damage but the news comes as a bitter pill for Pep Guardiola.

Also present at the event are stars including Gabriel Jesus and Fernandinho, who were part of the squad documented in the £10million Amazon series.

Early footage released from the show sees Pep Guardiola launch into a passionate half-time team talk during the club’s FA Cup final victory over Arsenal.

The boss is also present at the premiere, arriving with members of his backroom team including Xabier Mancisidor and under-18 Goalkeeper coach Richard Wright.
