Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany plays down injury fears

Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has played down injury fears after limping off during Belgium’s victory over Andorra on Friday evening.

The Blue Moon captain was substituted after 56 minutes and was later seen with strapping on his leg.

However, he has played down fears that the injury will keep him out of any of Belgium’s game against Bosnia-Herzegovina next week.

City also face a critical period over the coming weeks with crucial games in both the Premier League and Champions League.
“All is well. Before the game I informed the coach of a few glitches. He decided to spare me and bring me off,” he told Belgian TV station RTBF after the 6-0 win.

“If there was a night to take a player off with nothing to worry about, this was it.

“We did everything we needed to.

“In a game like this we must not underestimate the opponent. I am hoping the win will have a good impact on the goal difference.

“I am very positive and satisfied with the result and the performance of the team.”
