A recurring calf injury has forced Manchester City’s Vincent Kompany on staying out of the pitch in the entire month of January and it wasn’t until a few days ago that the Belgium defender was able to get back in the pitch as he made his return during Manchester City’s recent 1-2 defeat against Tottenham Hotspur.
Vincent Kompany is the captain and an icon for Manchester City, when he is out of the pitch and not able to play due to injuries or for any reason, it’s a big loss for Manuel Pellegrini and his squad and especially now that the Premier League has less than 13 matches left to be played before the new champions of England can be officially announced.
As a way to resolve this consistent calf injury that Vincent Kompany has been sustaining in this season, the Belgium went to the United States as he visited a number of specialists in America as well as in Europe but even with these trips and treatments that Kompany has undergone, it’s no guarantee that the Belgium defender will be injury free as there still is a big risk of him getting injured once again.
Even with the return of Kompany, Manchester City still failed to overcome Tottenham Hotspur and lost the match which is a huge blow for their chances of winning the Premier League in this season.
Vincent Kompany along with Yaya Toure, Sergio Aguero and David Silva are the main stars of Manchester City and Manuel Pellegrini is happy to see his key figures performing alongside each other as the Chilean manager said: “It’s important to have our important players all together. We started the season with Vincent, David Silva, Yaya Toure and Sergio Aguero, all of them playing in the first five games’’
If Manchester City has any chance of winning the Premier League title of this season, it’s crucial that all of their main players avoid getting injured for the remainder of the campaign.
