29-Year-Old Defender Manchester City Premier
Kompany has been ruled out for Sunday's match against West Ham, and he could miss the rest of the season, manager Manuel Pellegrini said Friday. "Vincent is injured," Pellegrini said. "It's very difficult to know (how long he'll be out). He has a muscle injury -- we don't know how many weeks. You don't know if he will be fit before the end of the season."
While Kompany hasn't had a great season, his absence will be a huge void to fill for City. Martin Demichelis and Eliaquim Mangala will likely start in the center of the defense while Kompany is sidelined, with youngster Dedryck Boyata available after recovering from a knee injury.
