Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany is expected to be back in training within the next seven to 10 days, boss Pep Guardiola has revealed.
The 31-year-old Belgian centre-back has visited doctor Ramon Cugat in Barcelona in an attempt to get to the bottom of his latest injury issue.
Kompany has not featured for City since August having sustained a calf problem while on international duty, with Guardiola admitting last week he was unsure when he would be available for selection again.
However, speaking ahead of Saturday’s trip to West Brom, Guardiola offered a more certain timescale.
“He just travelled to see Ramon to see how his injury is and it’s much better,” the City manager said. “I think in the next 10 days, one week to 10 days, he’ll be coming back. It’s a muscular injury.”
Prior to November’s international break, City face Napoli in a midweek Champions League encounter before hosting Arsenal on the Sunday, by which point Kompany may have returned to training.
