Kompany facing at least a month out


Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini expects Vincent Kompany to be out for at least a month after he suffered a recurrence of a calf injury against Dynamo Kiev.

Kompany has started just 13 games in the Premier League this season due to injury and he faces another spell on the sidelines after going down injured during the 0-0 draw with Dynamo Kiev at the Etihad Stadium.

The City captain limped off just six minutes into the last-16 second leg tie and he will undergo a scan to determine the extent of the problem, with Pellegrini predicting he will be ruled out for a 'minimum of one month'.

"Vincent unfortunately again has a muscle injury in his calf, the same problem as he had before," Pellegrini said.

"We will know maybe tomorrow or the day after how important it is, but always a muscle injury is a minimum of one month.

"Having this problem in his calf and it being the middle of March, at least three-quarters of the rest of the season he will not play.

"I think he must be very strong with his mentality.

"It is very difficult to accept it, but there is nothing he can do. So we must see tomorrow with the examinations."

Kompany is almost certain to miss Sunday's Manchester derby, while there is also a doubt over Nicolas Otamendi, who was forced off in the 23rd minute with a dead leg.

"He has an important kick," Pellegrini said.

"I think that will just be a couple of days and he may recover - we will see the way it develops over the next days."
