Manchester City Defender Vincent Kompany Could Be Out Until October

Manchester City’s defensive woes continued this week.

After picking up a groin injury on the opening weekend of the Premer League against Newcastle United, City captain and centre half Vincent Kompany was originally scheduled to be out of first team action for four weeks or more. However, the latest reports are that Kompany may be out until October.

It looks likely that Kompany will miss the Manchester derby on September 22.

Last weekend, Manchester City signed Atletico Madrid defender Martin Demíchelis, but before the Argentine even played a single match for City, Demíchelis has been ruled out for six weeks due to a knee injury.

Matija Nastasic has returned from injury, and Micah Richards is close to returning to first team action after a hamstring injury. However, City without Kompany are certainly not as strong as they can be.

    Typical that we sign a defender to cover for an injury and then the signing gets injured! Nastasic’s return is good but damn we need Kompany back. Provides solidity and confidence at the back that you just don’t get with Lescott (and that you certainly don’t get with Garcia).

      Going with Garcia over Barry in the squad is gonna haunt us this year . . .

        I never thought I would say that a team would miss Gareth Barry as I have never really rated him but it seems he is the type of player you don’t notice until he isn’t there working his arse off for the team. City will need to replace him in January definitely

        Rodwell has to find his health and form. He can be a difference maker if that happens.
