Vincent Kompany's poor luck with injuries struck again, ruling the former Manchester City captain out of his own testimonial.

The four-time Premier League winner was due to say farewell to the club by playing in a star-studded friendly at the Etihad Stadium last night.

But, much in keeping with the latter half of his City career, the defender was curtailed by a muscular problem, this time a hamstring issue.

Kompany missed 152 games during his 11 years at the club. The 33-year-old said: "It's typical of me!"

For Kompany, the main priority from his testimonial was to raise money for his homelessness charity Tackle4MCR.
