Manchester, May 8 (IANS) Belgium national football team captain Vincent Kompany has revealed that he won’t take part in the forthcoming European Championship due to injury.
The defender has made just 14 English Premier League appearances for Manchester City this season due a persistent calf injury that he picked up in September.
The centre-back has now revealed on his official Facebook page that he will not feature again this term and will miss the summer showpiece in France.
“I’ll miss the Euros. To me that’s very sad news. So I could be standing here, feeling sorry for myself. I fear for my career as others may do,” Kompany wrote in his Facebook page.
“There is a bigger picture to everything in life and only failing to see it, will cause me to fail. I am a hard worker and a fighter and if you are too, then you know that, to people like us, success can come in many forms. We trust ourselves when the going gets tough.
“So I remain calm and positive. I will continue to follow my path and I will do so with more conviction than ever,” he added.
