REUTERS - Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany is set for yet another spell on the sidelines after sustaining knee ligament damage, his manager Pep Guardiola said on Friday.
"It is a ligament problem. He will be four to six weeks out," Guardiola told reporters.
British media reported that there remains a firm desire from the defender and Guardiola to try to re-establish him in the first-team and the former Barcelona manager has decided to give Kompany until the end of the season to prove his fitness.
Striker Sergio Aguero is a doubt for Saturday's trip to Burnley after sustaining a foot problem in Wednesday's Champions League draw with German side Borussia Moenchengladbach.
