Kompany set for early return

Skipper could be back in two weeks

Manchester City have been handed a major boost with news that captain Vincent Kompany could be back in action within two weeks.

Reports had suggested that the Belgian international could be looking at another six weeks on the sidelines after a calf problem forced him off after just nine minutes against Sunderland over Christmas.

However, manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that progress has been good and that the talismanic captain is closing on a return.

"We said in the last press conference that it will be a couple of weeks and we need to wait and see how he improves but he could be back before," the Chilean said.

Pellegrini also revealed that he is unconcerned by a somewhat congested fixture list which will see his side play seven games over the next 30 days, even suggesting that he prefers it that way.

"Maybe it will be a disadvantage to us to play lots of games but I want to be involved in as many competitions as possible; it's better for the group and better for the squad," he added.

"I would prefer to be playing games than to be eliminated from these competitions."
