Vincent Kompany adds to Manchester City injury woes after suffering problem against Newcastle United
Captain could be out for up to three weeks
The Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini said that Vincent Kompany may miss the next two weeks with an injury picked up in his side’s impressive 4-0 win over Newcastle United.
The City captain came off in the second half, and Pellegrini said that the club would have a better idea on Tuesday about his long-term situation.
Pellegrini said: “Kompany we will see how he is when the doctor sees him. I can’t tell you exactly what happened, but it is not a serious injury and will possibly be one or two weeks.”
He added: “I don’t think it is a dream start, but a very good start, very confident that the team would do well. We worked very hard in pre season to play anther style of football, but this is the first match and we did very well.
On Edin Dzeko, voted man of the match, Pellegrini said: “He had a lot of chances, played very well, with the ball he is a very good player, but without the ball he also played very well. He had some good chances and deserved to score, but I am sure we will see the Dzeko that City bought two years ago. I spoke to him on my first day here and I think he will do well here.”
