Premier League star suspect that he contacted Coronavirus when Manchester went into lockdown but was tested as he didn’t show symptoms.
The spread of COVID-19 has engulfed the whole of Europe and have not even spared the footballers as many Premier League stars also contacted the disease and remained in isolation until got better.
In the latest update, Kevin De Bruyne claims that he contacted the Coronavirus when Manchester was going into lockdown and the pandemic was sweeping across the area.
De Bruyne revealed that there were several members of his household sick for a long period of time – but they recovered before confirming whether the issues were related to coronavirus.
“At the beginning of the lockdown my family was sick for eight or nine days,” De Bruyne told Sky Sports. It started with my little boy, then my older boy and then my wife, but I don’t know if we had [coronavirus] or not.
“Luckily we are out of it and the last two or three weeks has been really good and we are finding a routine and everything so we are fine.” said De Bruyne further.
The Premier League players were strictly told to follow the lockdown and remain in their houses. The Belgian International spoke about he adjusted with the unusual routine.
“Well, the first two weeks was a little bit weird because I don’t know what’s going on,” De Bruyne said. “Then I managed to get a treadmill. I was swimming a little bit because I’m lucky to have a pool downstairs.
“I was doing a couple of lengths but now mostly I’m doing a run and I would say every other day I would choose between swimming and doing some exercise, so I’m keeping fairly good for what we can on our own, I guess.”
He also revealed Manchester City were doing their bit to help guide the players in their fitness regimes. They send us like a fairly big programme,” De Bruyne added.
“I think at the beginning of lockdown some of the gym physios went to the club and made videos of what we can do, different types of exercises.
“But there are a few things that I like to do, obviously it’s more the running and the swimming exercise. “I do a little bit in-between but I’m not one for sitting like an hour or two hours in a gym.
“I get bored of doing stuff on my own anyway so I prefer to do running, where I keep busy for myself and listen to some podcasts and all that stuff.”
