The Man City captain,Vincent Kompany has been out of action since he damaged his calf muscle against Dynamo Kiev, a month ago. Vinny has missed the last three weeks of football with his aggravated calf problem. The Belgium defender was not expected to be back in action until April end, but he has resumed training a bit ahead of the schedule. The Manchester City captain is in line for a shock return and could even face Paris St Germain in the second leg of the Champions League quarter-final next week, reports DailyStar.
The Blues skipper was already back in training last week, recovering from his latest calf injury but he wasn’t fit enough to face the French champions on Wednesday night. But on Tuesday night, the City defender is eyeing a return to the Etihad Stadium.
However, there were some rumours that the Belgian could even be ruled out for the rest of the season. After the 2-2 draw at Parc des Princes Pellegrini said: “We’ll see him during the week and the way he improves.
“The last days, Vincent worked very well. Now we must test him with more intensity and it’s very difficult to answer now.”
Just eight minutes into the Champions League clash with Kiev on March 15 and Vincent Kompany started feeling his calf badly, limped off and was substituted – so a return after just three weeks would obviously fall within the expected timeframe. The Belgian international has been dogged by calf injuries for the last few years and seeing his condition, the City boss Manuel Pellegrini expected him to be out of action for around a month or so. Pellegrini is also not afraid of risking it. The City boss is all set to gamble by playing Kompany. Although according to Marc Wilmots Pellegrini won’t risk the Belgian, does Pellegrini care? I don’t think so, he is totally focused on gifting something to the Blues which they have never achieved, the biggest prize for any football club! It is just a matter of time, but for now, Pellegrini’s side are the favourites as they are entering the second leg with 2 away goals.
