Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed that Vincent Kompany will be added to the squad for their match against the Hawthrons and praised his ability to uplift the team.
Manchester City skipper, Kompany, limped off after 34 minutes against Everton in October due to a thigh injury. But now the defender is set to lead his club today against West Brom and is praised by his boss, Pellegrini, as a ‘key player’ for the team.
“Kompany is in the squad list and will travel with the team,” the Chilean said. “He is a very good defender and, of course, we need him.’’
He added, “On the other side, in the last five [domestic] games just Sunderland has scored one goal [against us]. In all the others, we have had clean sheets. So the other defenders can do it as well but Vincent is always an important player.”
West Bromwich Albion F.C. welcome City to Halfords Lane today at 1:30 AM IST.
