Kompany to miss a further three weeks

Updated: February 1, 2013

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany
could miss another three weeks because of a calf injury.

Kompany suffered the problem in City’s FA Cup fourth-round win at Stoke City,
and missed the 0-0 draw at QPR on Tuesday.

But manager Roberto Mancini revealed that his captain will be out longer than
expected, meaning that City could be without the Belgium international for
matches with Liverpool and Southampton in the league as well as a fifth-round
FA Cup contest against Leeds United.

Kompany has started 20 of City’s 24 Premiership games this season, with City
entering the weekend seven points back of leaders Manchester United.
