Football - In­jury-hit Kom­pany set for an­other spell out for City

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

In­jury-plagued Manch­ester City cap­tain Vin­cent Kom­pany is set for an­other spell on the side­lines be­cause of a knee lig­a­ment prob­lem. City man­ager Pep Guardi­ola said yes­ter­day that Kom­pany will be out for “weeks” and that the de­fender was trav­el­ing to a hos­pi­tal in Spain for fur­ther as­sess­ment. Kom­pany hurt his knee dur­ing City's 2-1 win over Crys­tal Palace in the Premier League on Satur­day, a game in which he was sub­sti­tuted in the first half fol­low­ing a knock to the head. Calf and groin in­juries forced Kom­pany to miss most of last sea­son, as well as the Euro­pean Cham­pi­onship across June-July, and var­i­ous mi­nor set­backs have re­stricted him to five ap­pear­ances this sea­son. Guardi­ola was speak­ing ahead of City's match against Borus­sia Moenchenglad­bach in the Cham­pi­ons League to­day.
