Thursday you’re starting to feel good again, Friday you’re flying, Saturday you’re top of the world, Sunday not so much and when Monday comes around it’s, well… Monday.
You wouldn’t expect that to apply to footballers but it does, judging by Kevin De Bruyne’s comments following Man City’s 1-1 draw with Burnley.
The Belgian was asked how tiredness was affecting him with 12 games left in the Premier League season.
As if describing how we all feel about Monday morning, De Bruyne said: “You feel great for 10 games, then you feel OK for 10 games and then the rest you feel like shit.”
We can hear the tiredness in his voice as he said that.
It’s no surprise that the 26-year-old is beginning to feel the burn.
KDB has completed 2,975 minutes this season, which is the most in the City squad.
With Pep Guardiola only fielding six substitutes instead of seven it doesn’t look like De Bruyne will be getting a break any time soon.
However Guardiola is giving his players three days to rest before they take on Leicester next Saturday.
So De Bruyne can settle in and catch up on his favourite TV show without anything to worry about.
