KOMPANY KO! Manchester City skipper may not play again this season

first_imgManchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed captain Vincent Kompany could miss the remainder of the season.The Belgian defender suffered a groin injury during the derby defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford last week.He is definitely out of Saturday’s meeting with West Ham at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday, and is a major doubt to play in their final five games too.“He is injured. It is very difficult to know the way you improve if you are injured,” said Pellegrini, at his pre-match press conference.“He has a muscle injury, we don’t know how many weeks.“We always know the (approximate) amount of weeks he needs to recover but we don’t know if he will be fit from now until the end of the season.”The injury is the latest setback for Kompany in what has been a difficult campaign personally.The 29-year-old has not been his usual formidable self and has faced criticism of his form as City’s title challenge has faltered.It is also yet another in what has been a long line of leg muscle problems in recent years.Already this season he has missed nine games – mostly in December – with calf or hamstring injuries. 1 Vincent Kompany last_img read more
