Former Manchester City Captain Vincent Kompany will miss his Manchester City testimonial on Wednesday due to a hamstring injury.
The former City captain had been due to feature in the star-studded charity match that will see a City legends team face an all-star XI of former Premier League players to raise money for his homelessness charity Tackle4MCR.
Kompany left the Premier League champions in May to become player-manager at Anderlecht and, much like the latter half of his City career, was hit by a muscle injury in defeat to Genk last month.
“Unfortunately I can’t start or even play. I have a slight hamstring injury and can’t risk it. It’s typical me,” said Kompany.
However, the Belgian international played down his frustration at missing out with the most important goal raising funds for charity.
Current City stars David Silva and Sergio Aguero will line-up alongside the likes of Mario Balotelli in a team managed by Pep Guardiola.
They will face an all-star side littered with former Manchester United greats like Edwin van der Sar, Gary Neville, Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs, but also boasting Thierry Henry and Robin van Persie in attack.
