Kevin De Bruyne said he is still feeling the effects of COVID-19 nearly a month after first testing positive for the virus.

De Bruyne returned a positive test on Nov. 17. He returned to training after 10 days in isolation. 

"I still feel sometimes that my body is still adapting because sometimes I do two or three sprints and feel it, having had COVID," he said.

"I was pretty sick for four days. I think it was like flu but I've never had that so can't say for sure.

"But I had a temperature, especially in the evenings, and lost my smell and taste. After five days it was getting better but needed more time for the taste and the smell but now I'm okay."
