Kompany suffers calf injury

Belgium and Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has been sent for a scan after sustaining a calf injury.

The Belgian Football Association revealed that the influential central defender was taken to hospital on Wednesday and is awaiting to discover the extent of his injury.

"No @vincentkompany at training today. He was taken to the hospital for a calf scan. We'll have to wait for the results," read a Tweet from the Belgian FA.

Kompany was due to feature for his country in a friendly against Australia in Liege on Thursday.

The 28-year-old has featured in all three of Manchester City's Premier League matches this season after signing a new long-term contract with the Premier League champions last month.

City boss Manuel Pellegrini will be hoping Kompany is not facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines, with Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Chelsea their next three opponents.
