Vincent Kompany might not be available for his club Manchester City for their match against the Czech club Viktoria Plzen. That’s a Champions League match and will take place towards the end of this month.

Kompany was expected to recover from his thigh injury till that time, but, yesterday, the team doctor of the Belgian national football team made a statement that Kompany might need an extra week to get back to 100% fitness. That means the City management might have to wait till December to get the skipper back.

Kompany had injured himself in the first week of October while playing in a Premier League game against Everton. It didn’t seem to be a major injury at that point of time and he was expected to be back in action in about 20 days or so, but, his recovery didn’t go as smoothly as expected.

This is not the first time that Kompany has suffered a muscle injury. He has suffered a lot of such injuries in the last 1 year or so and as a result, he has missed a lot of matches in the recent past.

Talking to the reporters yesterday about Kompany’s injury, the team doctor of the Belgian team said, “Vincent will need extra few days to recover completely. We are trying our best to get him fit as quickly as possible, but, these kinds of injuries take time to heal.”

Kompany has been a vital member of the Manchester City side in the last 5 years. He has won a lot of games for City with his solid defensive performances.

The 27 years old Belgian international has made more than 150 Premier League appearances for City so far and has scored 7 goals in those matches.
