Typical... injured Kompany to miss his own testimonial

Typical... injured Kompany to miss his own testimonial

Cape Town - Midfielder Kevin de Bruyne has admitted he would like to be reunited with Vincent Kompany at Anderlecht when he one day departs Manchester City.

"At the unveiling, the Chairman (Khaldoon Al-Mubarak) revealed to Vincent that the Club has also begun the process of commissioning a sculpture to publicly recognize and celebrate his achievements and contributions to Manchester City".

Vincent Kompany is to be honoured with a sculpture outside the Etihad Stadium, Manchester City have announced.

Benjani will feature for Manchester City Legends, managed by Pep Guardiola, against a Premier League All-Stars XI, who Roberto Martinez will take charge of.

"Unfortunately I can't start or even play". "It's typical of me, right?"

However, the Belgian global played down his frustration at missing out with the most important goal raising funds for charity.

PL All-Stars: Edwin van der Sar, Shay Given, Phil Neville, Gary Neville, John O'Shea, Wes Brown, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Michael Carrick, Ryan Giggs, Rafael van der Vaart, Cesc Fabregas, Thierry Henry, Robin van Persie.

His support of the Club's charitable and community initiatives was unfailing, whilst he has also dedicated all proceeds of his testimonial year - through his campaign Tackle4MCR - to the Greater Manchester Mayor's Homelessness Fund.

"I could have ended up at another club, and out of four league titles you could have maybe turned it into eight, depending on which club you go to, and how successful it is", the former captain told Sky Sports.

City failed to replace Kompany in the summer transfer window and are now short at center-back with Aymeric Laporte facing a lengthy spell out injured.

"By losing Laporte you lose a big player". For me not to play this game - the irony has not escaped anyone.

"They can avoid and recover this gap by becoming a stronger team but I don't see City weakening. Pep is way too aware of this danger to let it happen".
