Manchester City to Be in Good Kompany this Saturday

Vincent Kompany logged nearly an hour of playing time for the Belgians this past weekend which means fans should expect him on the pitch for Saturday’s match-up against Bournemouth.

The 29 year old defender had been sidelined with a calf injury for his Club’s last five games. The strain also left him out of international duty until this Saturday when Belgium took on Israel in Brussels. The Belgians won 3-1 securing the top spot in Group B and a seed during the finals this summer in France.

Kompany has been with the Citizens since 2008.

Kompany was excited about putting on the kit for his country as well as returning from the international break healthy enough to play for Manchester City,

“I feel great and I am glad I got to do it. I needed to be part of this. At the same time it’s going again now and I am just looking forward to the next games.”

“I play for my country and I am proud to do it. There are no small games. I have given everything I have, always, for City. I will carry on doing this and I will do the same for my country.”

This is good news for Pelligrini and City who have lost some key players over the international break. Sergio Aguero is likely to be out for a month with a hamstring injury he picked up while playing for Argentina and David Silva torqued his ankle in an appearance for Spain.

Aguero scored five goals against Newcastle alone in 2015 and now may miss up to seven games.

Manchester City will have to rely on their depth and call on reserves to step up if they want to maintain their place at the top of the League table.
