Kompany Suffers New Injury

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has suffered another injury as his comeback on the pitch lasted less than 10 minutes on Saturday.

Kompany, 29, came on as a substitute against Sunderland but had to leave the game after just nine minutes. The Belgian international posted an emotional message on his Facebook page.

“Today was a bad day for me. My body feels invincible – the best it’s ever been – but I’m challenged by a number of small and local injuries. It leaves me more frustrated than with any of the ‘big’ injuries I’ve had but it’s a challenge that I will overcome.

“There are worst things in life of course and I never forget that. So I’m definitely not asking anyone to feel sorry for me and I hope you wouldn’t anyway. This is a way to communicate my situation to those who maybe deserve answers.

“I’ve made many sacrifices to get where I am today and football is everything to me. This is what I fought for so hard. I want to be the best defender in the world and I want Manchester City FC and Belgium to become the best club and country in world football. I won’t give up that dream.

“Injuries have and still are preventing me to play my role the way I’d want to but it’s not stopping me to progress. I will get on with it and when I do come back, I will be stronger again. My mindset stays unchanged, I will fight to get what I deserve, my best years in football.”

Kompany re-injured his calf, and manager Manuel Pellegrini was unsure on how long it will take for him to come back.
