Man City Captain, Vincent Kompany Is Out With Knee InjuryManchester City manager Pep Guardiola has confirmed that his captain , Vincent Kompany will be sidelined for weeks with a knee injury.
Kompany was on the pitch for just 35 minutes before he was withdrawn in City’s Premier League win at Crystal Palace on Saturday, November 19.
The City captain collided with Claudio Bravo and could not continue.
It has now been confirmed that the Belgian defender will be out of action for a ‘few weeks’.
"He is injured, he will be out for the next weeks," Guardiola said at a press conference in Dusseldorf ahead of his side's Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach Today.
"Fortunately there is nothing wrong with the head but the real problem is with the knee. He could be out for weeks. He is sad and I am sad because it is a long time he doesn't play."
This is Kompany’s third injury this season as the defender has struggled with his issues.
He has been sent to Barcelona-based specialist Dr Ramon Cugat to receive treatment.
"He is in the best hands so he can recover as soon as possible. He will make the best treatment possible," Guardiola added.
"The doctor told me weeks but didn't explain how many. We'll see. It is ligaments."
Kompany has made only five appearances for City this season.
