Pellegrini: Kompany Out For A Month

share on:

Manchester City manager, Manuel Pellegrini has said defender and captain, Vincent Kompany will be out for a month due to a calf injury.

Kompany returned from his previous calf injury against Sunderland, but could only play for nine minutes.

Pellegrini can now confirm Kompany will be out for 3-4 weeks with another calf injury.

“Vincent has an injury, a second degree tear of the calf,” Pellegrini said of his captain, who managed fewer than nine minutes as a substitute in the Boxing Day win over Sunderland.

“We will see how long he will be out, but I don’t think it will be less than three-four weeks.

“I am not a doctor, but with a muscle injury, it will be very difficult for him to be back in less than four weeks. But without him, we must continue to defend as we did tonight.”
