This Premier League season is not a memorable one for Vincent Kompany as he is struggling just to stay fit.
The Belgium captain of Manchester City has made less than 15 league appearances for his club in this season and things have a turn for the worst after the 29 year old defender picked up a calf injury which will be keeping him out of the pitch for around 8 weeks.
Vincent Kompany had to be removed from the pitch during Manchester City’s Champions League match against Dynamo Kiev which saw the game resulting in a goal-less scoreboard. The Belgian defender was substituted as early as the 7th minute.
This is the 3rd time in this season that Vincent Kompany has picked up a calf injury and it’s the main reason of why he has not been able to make consistent performances for Manchester City and it’s a huge problem for the Premier League club as Kompany is arguably one of the more influential figures of the entire squad.
Manchester City’s Manuel Pellegrini revealed details concerning the recent injury of Vincent Kompany as the Chilean manager said: “It is a new injury in the other calf, a little bit higher behind the knee. It is similar to AleksandarKolarov injury a month ago. Kolarov took around three weeks to one month to come back.It’s very important the way he improves in the first two weeks that he starts working it’s difficult now to say, but the first thing we think is that he can return in a month.”
Pellegrini is hoping that Vincent Kompany will be able to make a full recovery from his injury before the season reaches it’s end
The season of Vincent Kompany and of Manchester City kicked off brilliantly as they did not concede a single goal from their opening 5 matches but the season of the Belgian started to go downhill after his injuries began to hit him which has forced him to stay out of the field for the majority of the season with only a limited amount of performances.
