Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that the Citizens’ skipper Kompany will be out with a calf injury for another “three or four” weeks.
Kompany, has struggled with the problem this season, limping out of the Boxing Day win over Sunderland after a brief substitute appearance.
Third-placed City drew 0-0 at Leicester on Tuesday, their first clean sheet of the season without defender Kompany. He briefly returned at the end of October, but then was missing again until the 4-1 win against Sunderland.
“It is the same calf but a different part. For his return to be less than three or four weeks would be very difficult. Pellegrini said as quoted on BBC Sports.
The Belgium international has missed 11 of his team’s 19 Premier League matches this season after initially injuring his calf against Juventus on 15 September.
