Manchester City fans will not have to fear yet another injury for Vincent Kompany on an international break with confirmation that the club captain will play no part in Belgium’s next World Cup qualifiers.
Kristof Terreur, reliable on all things Belgium football, has reported that the 31-year-old did travel to Belgium for a check-up, but the doctors did not deem him fit enough to play and have returned him to Manchester.

Kompany has not played a single minute of football for Man City since the last international break, when he took a knock in Belgium’s thrashing of Gibraltar, then felt a tightness in his calf in the days leading up to Belgium’s win over Greece.
There was more than a little annoyance among Blues when Vinny was called up by Belgium for the next set of fixtures, but it turns out he’ll spend the next couple of weeks continuing his recovery in Manchester.
