City’s Kompany a doubt for Roma clash

Manchester City manager Manuel Pelligrini spoke ahead of his team’s match against Sunderland and was asked about the upcoming, decisive Champions League clash against Roma:

“Kompany? It’s very difficult, because I can’t say without the opinion of the doctor how his injury will improve in the next few days. It depends on the degree of the muscle injury he has, so it is difficult to know if he can play against Roma. I am not thinking anything about Roma at this moment. Vincent is not able to play against Sunderland and Everton, that is sure, but we will see if he is back against Roma – that will depend on the opinion of the doctor.”
