Vincent Kompany: Doubt for trip to Chelsea

The defender reportedly left the Etihad Stadium on crutches after suffering a knee injury in the second half of City's Champions League draw with Real Madrid.

The 26-year-old left the field for treatment 10 minutes from time, but came back on and finished the match.

The centre-back received further treatment after the final whistle and was unable to conduct post-match interviews with the press.

He later relayed his thoughts on the match, which saw City's hopes of progress in the competition end.

City had needed to beat the Spanish giants to stand any chance of reaching the knockout stages but could only manage a 1-1 draw.

It is the second successive season the club have failed to make it beyond the group phase.

Kompany wrote on Twitter: "The opportunity to claim our place at the top of European football will come again. No sad faces, just the hunger to improve."

Striker Sergioi Aguero said: "We gave our best, but we couldn't win. Without a doubt, the Champions League is a missing subject. But there's always a rematch on football."

ell, if he'd be unable to reject an offer from Barcelona or Madrid, he may as well join Arsenal while he's waiting for them to call. It's a logical progression.

h ha ha, excellent. Let's hope he goes on the run. Then they hunt piggy down for scoffing all the apples. At least he's done something right - he has united football fans, regardless of who they support, against FIFA and all those at the top who have been bleeding the game for their own means and giving nothing back.
