Vincent Kompany confirms he will miss his own testimonial through injury

Vincent Kompany has confirmed he will play no part in his own testimonial.

Kompany, 33, is set to bid an emotional farewell to the Etihad on Wednesday night when a Manchester City Legends side faces a team made up of Premier League all stars.

But the Anderlecht player-manager has announced he will not play due to a thigh problem.

Kompany was forced off in Anderlecht’s victory over Genk before the international break and has not recovered in time.

Speaking to the media before the match, he said: “Unfortunately, I won’t be starting tonight or playing.

“It’s typical of me, I’ve got a slight hamstring injury so I couldn’t risk it tonight but there’s a low of awesome players.

“It’s a celebration to say goodbye and I don’t have to be on the pitch. It’s for an unbelievable cause.”
