Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has given no assurances over the long term fitness of Vincent Kompany despite his imminent return from injury, report the Daily Mail.
A recurrence of a calf injury has restricted the talismanic Belgian to just nine minutes of action in the last three months.
He is, however, back in the squad for the crunch top of the table clash with Tottenham Hotspur this weekend.
Still, the City chief has aired a sense of caution over his return to the first-team setup.
‘It’s very difficult to find a particular thing about a muscle injury. There’s a lot of things you can do to try to have less injuries but no-one will be sure you are not going to have any more’, stated the Chilean.
‘It’s impossible to know but he’s working without any problems, without fear, so it would be bad luck if he has another injury.’
His last comeback lasted just nine minutes on Boxing Day and his continued absence has seriously undermined the club’s title assault.
