UKevin de Bruyne ubengekho enkundleni ngenxa yokulimala esiwombeni sokuqala kanti u-Erling Haaland ubeqashwe ngelokhozi ezokuvikela ze-Inter Milan.

Futhi lokho kuvele kwacacisa ukuthi umdlalo ushubile.

Amathuba ambalwa avela kuRomelu Lukaku acishe ashintsha umdlalo ngokuphelele kodwa inhlanhla ivune izintandokazi futhi ekugcineni ompetha baseNgilandi bathole ilungelo lokuwina isicoco sabo esisha – njengompetha base-Europe.

Okubaluleke nakakhulu ukuthi i-Manchester City iwine izicoco ezintathu.

Omakhelwane babo i-Manchester United ngeke besakwazi ukufakazela lokho kuhlonishwa njengoba uGuardiola engumqeqeshi wokuqala ngqa ukuwina izicoco ezintathu emaqenjini amabili ahlukene ngemuva kokujabulela impumelelo efanayo e-Spain ne-Barcelona eminyakeni engu-14 edlule.
