The midfielder was involved in an ugly clash of heads with Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger which led to his substitution early in the second half of the game. He was visibly devastated by the injury and left the field in tears before heading straight to the tunnel.
His substitute Gabriel Jesus was unable to influence the game much as City went on to lose.
After leaving the hospital on Sunday, the Belgian midfielder took to Twitter to reveal the extent of the injury.
He wrote: ‘Hi guys, just got back from the hospital. My diagnosis is acute nose bone fracture and left orbital fracture. I feel okay now. Still disappointed about yesterday, obviously, but we will be back.’
In reply to his tweet, Manchester City posted a message on their official Twitter account to wish De Bruyne a speedy recovery.
“Everyone at the Club wishes you a speedy recovery”, the tweet read.
De Bruyne played a major part in City’s run to the final. He contributed three goals and four assists in eight Champions League games this season. He was often deployed as a striker in Pep Guardiola’s side instead of his usual position in midfield.
De Bruyne is also seen as a critical element for Belgium national team, when they will play Euro 2020 two weeks from now. There is no official comments on that. Hope, to see the playmaker in the European Championship.
