Injured star to return soon to training with Man City

Manchester City captain and centre-back Vincent Kompany is set to return to full training in the next seven to 10 days as he steps up his recovery from his latest injury setback, manager Pep Guardiola said on Friday.

The towering defender hasn’t been in action since suffering a calf problem while featuring for Belgium against Gibraltar in a World Cup qualifier.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has ruled him out of their next 3 matches but is hopeful that Kompany will be available when City will face Leicester in the Premier League on November 18.

The right-footed centre-back went to Barcelona this week to be assessed by Ramon Cugat, Guardiola’s preferred specialist, who has also been looking after Benjamin Mendy as he recovers from knee ligament damage.

Kompany has returned with a positive diagnosis and Guardiola is keen to get him back into the squad to add defensive competition for John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi.

“Vincent just travelled to see Ramon, to see how his injury is,” Guardiola said at his pre-match press conference in Manchester.

 “In the next seven to 10 days, he’ll be coming back. It’s a muscular injury.”
The return of Kompany is a wonderful news for the Etihad side as he will play a pivotal role for Pep’s side. With such an experience and perfect defensive skills, he surely is an asset for the club and who better than Pep to take the best use out of him.
