Vincent Kompany says he won’t play on Wednesday his bill night.
A host of Manchester City and Premier League legends have been made to turn out for the testimonial in the Etihad Stadium of Kompany, live evening.
Mario Balotelli, Thierry Henry, Ryan Giggs, Cesc Fabregas and Robin van Persie are among the star names that will be in action.
However, the Belgian himself states he, paradoxically, will not be able to perform because of a issue.
“Unfortunately I won’t be starting tonight or enjoying. It’s typical of me, right? I am usually just there for the close of the season,” Kompany explained.
“I’ve got a small hamstring injury. I couldn’t risk it tonight.
“We’ve got lots of awesome gamers to be seeing now and in many ways it is all about a party to say goodbye, it does not have to be on the pitch because such.
“In the same way, we are doing it for an incredible cause. This takes priority.
“I’ll be there for David Silva and Kun Aguero’s testimonials”
Reflecting on his stay at Manchester City in the Premier League, the 33-year-old was requested to pick out the very best defender in the Premier League era.
Kompany ruled himself out but picked UEFA Player and current Liverpool centre-back of the Season Virgil van Dijk out since the guardian that has impressed him most.
“Players that impressed when I played against them in central defence, I’d bring it back to Virgil van Dijk,” he said.
“it is a weird one since he has not been around the scene for as long as these titles we mentioned, John Terry, Rio Ferdinand, those men were there for a longlong moment.
“However, the signs he’s revealed in the past couple of years just make it obvious that when he would’ve been in the very top, top level before that he would’ve been already farther too.
“From what I’ve noticed in terms of having an effect on the team, and a defender is about himself, it is about his communicating with different men and the way you create your staff stronger.
“The Liverpool before van Dijk and the one after him it’s a completely different set-up and I’ll give him one due to this.”
