Former Tottenham player Darren Bent has offered his insights to Manchester City on how they could navigate the absence of their star player, Kevin de Bruyne.
De Bruyne’s unfortunate injury could potentially keep him out of action for an extended period.
Bent suggests that Erling Haaland, the top scorer of the previous season, would be an excellent choice to step up and fill the void left by De Bruyne’s absence.
He underlines that the key lies in the collective effort of the team, asserting that other players must rise to the occasion.
Bent emphasized that City will need a collective effort from their squad to fill the gap created by the absence of the Belgian midfielder.
Given that De Bruyne could be sidelined for up to four months, Bent commented on the situation, stating, “Other players are gonna have to step up!” He conveyed his thoughts on talkSPORT.
Acknowledging Haaland’s exceptional abilities, Bent also noted, “Haaland is one of the best; he will adapt!”
