Kevin De Bruyne has revealed that he has been in ‘severe pain’ this season, with the Manchester City star admitting that his injury problems have caused him ‘physical and mental’ difficulties.

De Bruyne, 30, has endured a frustrating campaign so far. His three goals and one assist in 14 appearances pale in comparison to his incredible performance of past seasons.

Injuries have contributed significantly to De Bruyne’s numbers this period. The Belgian was forced to miss matches against Norwich and Arsenal earlier this season due to an ankle injury and has started just five of eleven league games so far.

And De Bruyne has admitted that this season has been ‘tougher than usual’ and has had to tolerate ‘severe pain’ due to the nature of his injury.

‘It’s a bit more difficult than usual this year,’ he said via Het Nieuwsblad. “It’s not that bad, I think, but it has been a bit difficult physically and mentally.

“I came back in a lot of pain after the holidays, and then at the beginning of the season, my face was against the wall.

‘I’ve had serious pain, but it’s starting to get better. I just needed more time than expected. ‘

The 30-year-old Belgian has scored three goals in a frustrating campaign with Man City thus far.

It has been a difficult few months for De Bruyne, who was forced to leave injured during City’s defeat in the Champions League final against Chelsea in Porto.

The Belgian suffered a broken nose and eye socket after a collision with Antonio Rudiger and said last month that he has no recollection of the incident.

“I don’t remember much, I don’t remember how I got to the hospital that same night,” De Bruyne said.

‘There are not many memories after the incident. Is that dark? Maybe. I returned to the team hotel in the morning at 10 am still in my City uniform!

“The last six months have been highs and lows, playing but not really training. I had quite a bit of pain in my ankle so it was good that we took some time off. I feel so much better and I feel stronger and stronger. ‘

It's been a rough few months for De Bruyne, who fractured his nose and eye socket in May.
