Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has calmed worries about his fitness.

The defender limped out of Belgium's win over Andorra on Friday in the 56th minute and had strapping on his leg.

The fitness of Kompany is seen as imperative to City's success at home and abroad, but he insists all is fine ahead of important clashes in the Premier and Champions League.

Speaking to Belgian TV station RTBF he said: "All is well. Before the game I informed the coach of a few glitches. He decided to spare me and bring me off."

 

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

Minnows Andorra offered no resistance as Marc Wilmots' side ran out 6-0 winners.

Kevin De Bruyne and Dries Mertens scored twice each, with Nacer Chadli and on-loan Liverpool striker Divock Origi getting the others.

Belgium next face Bosnia-Herzegovina and Kompany added: "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."
