Vincent Kompany will miss his own testimonial after the former Manchester City defender suffering a hamstring injury.
Kompany was set to lead Manchester City legends against Premier League All-Stars team but there has been very unfortunate news ahead of the clash. And now the Anderlecht player-manager has ruled himself out of his own testimonial game due to a hamstring injury. He struggled with injury for much of his Man City career, spending a lot of time on the sidelines.
Speaking to the media ahead of the clash, the 33-year-old explained he has a slight hamstring injury and he simply could not risk playing.
“Unfortunately I won’t be starting tonight or playing,” he said.
“It’s typical of me, right? I’m usually just there for the end of the season.
“I’ve got a slight hamstring injury. I couldn’t risk it tonight. We’ve got plenty of awesome players to be watching today and in many ways it is about a celebration to say goodbye, it doesn’t need to be on the pitch as such.
“In the same way, we are doing it for an unbelievable cause. That takes priority. I’ll be there for David Silva and Kun Aguero’s testimonials.”
