The Belgian centre back got injured in Manchester City’s 1-0 loss to Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League round of 15 and now is set to miss the next two weeks of action for the Premier League leaders... has come out and expressed his fears regarding Vincent Kompany’s absence from Manchester City’s starting line up for the next two weeks as the Belgian defender is set to miss football action for at least two more
weeks due to his injury against Sporting Lisbon in the Europa League.
City travelled to to face off against Sporting Lisbon and failed to make an impact away from the comfort of their home stadium as Sporting ended up as eventual winners by a solitary goal.
City never really recovered from the loss of their captain early on in the match as Kompany went off injured just after seven minutes of the encounter. City will hope that they can turn the tie around next week when Lisbon come
to the Etihad stadium for the second leg of their round of 16 Europa League tie.
Mancini said, "I hope that for Vinnie, the injury will be short. When you have a calf (injury), it can be a big problem. I hope he can recover in 10 days, two weeks maximum. We will see how it is in another one or two days. I didn't
take a risk with Micah because is injured. Micah will play on Sunday."
He added, “It wasn't a surprise because anything can happen in football, but I don't think we deserve to lose. We didn't play very well but could've scored, then conceded a goal, so that is it. We have another 90 minutes and I
think it will be a different game. We still have a big chance. Hopefully we will have a chance to score and I think we will score. I don't think they had a lot of chances to score. Sporting had players behind the ball always, to play on the counter-attack.”
