Manuel Pellegrini: Injury update on Vincent Kompany, Eliaquim Mangala and Wilfried Bony


Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini says defender Vincent Kompany will not be rushed back into action.

The Belgian suffered a fresh injury at the end of last year after coming on as a substitute during City's 4-1 win against Sunderland.

But he is still not ready to make his comeback in the Chilean's starting line-up.

"Mangala and Bony are both still injured. We will know more tomorrow," Pellegrini revealed.

"Vincent [Kompany] is progressing, it's a muscle injury and we must not rush him.

"I think one of most important merits of this squad is to continue being in all the competitions with so many injuries.

"I hope in future we have the normal amount of players.

"[Interest in the FA Cup?] I repeat we are going to be focused game by game.

"For the moment we continue with the same squad. I trust in the players - in the first four months we could do it so we can again.

"The priority for my team is to try and win every game, it doesn't matter which competition you are in.

"That gives you an ambitious mind and a winning mind."
