Manchester City will once again be without captain Vincent Kompany, as he’s set to miss “weeks” of football due to a knee injury.
Kompany had been taken off early during City’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday. He had collided with teammate Claudio Bravo, and was initially thought to have been suffering from a concussion.
On Tuesday, manager Pep Guardiola revealed the extent of his injury, saying he’d be out for a long time after suffering damage to knee ligaments.
“He has a problem with his knee. He could be out for weeks,” Guardiola said at the press conference ahead of City’s Champions League clash with Borussia Monchengladbach.
“We have to try to help him week after week to see if he can play more often. Deciding now is not the right thing. He’s sad and I’m sad. It’s a long time he doesn’t play.”
