Huge boost for Man City as star defender back in training

Manchester City have been boosted by news that Vincent Kompany has returned to training with the rest of the senior squad, Skysports reports.

The 29-year-old has struggled with a number of calf injuries this season and has not featured for his club since playing for nine minutes back in December.

However, the centre-back is making a positive recovery as City have come out to confirm his recovery after being hit with a six-month layoff.

“Vincent Kompany’s given the City squad a welcome boost by returning to first-team training following a six-week lay-off,” he said.

“The skipper’s been working hard to return to fitness since his last outing against Sunderland on Boxing Day, and Blues fans everywhere will be delighted to see him back in action alongside his team-mates at the City Football Academy.”

It is still unknown when he can make his playing return, but is unlikely to be able to feature in the vital top of table clash against Leicester City tomorrow.

A statement from the club’s official website has also revealed that manager Manuel Pellegrini is set to reveal his return date during today’s press conference.

The Belgium international only managed to feature in nine Premier League matches and another three Champions League games this term, scoring two goals in the process.
