Begium’s national squad’s physiotherapist, Lieven Maesschakck, has confirmed that Vincent Kompany will be out for four months.
The centre-back, who limped off in the eighth minute during Manchester City’s 1-0 loss to Real Madrid, has been confirmed to be out for the Euros this summer. In addition, the Belgian’s physio has said that although he will be back playing football at some stage, he’s not going to be back in action for at least four months, which takes him up to September.

The defender has struggled with a hamstring injury, particularly this season, and if it’s refusing to heal with so long spent on the sidelines, it begs the question of how long City will keep ahold of him.
The loss of Kompany, who is City’s skipper, will come as a blow for City fans going into the Arsenal clash, considering the match is bound to be intense, having their captain on the pitch could have helped the team band together.
The Blues are currently hoping to beat the Gunners in order to fight it out for third in the Premier League.by
