Manuel Pellegrini has warned his club captain Vincent Kompany that he is not assured of regaining his place in Manchester City’s scratch-up after he remained away from his side’s 2-0 victory over Leicester on the Etihad Stadium.
The Belgian FIFA World Cup™ central defender was by far the most high-profile victim of sweeping changes produced by Pellegrini inside the wake of successive and costly defeats to Barcelona and Liverpool.
Kompany’s poor form cost him his location for a victory that City laboured to record, through goals late in each half from David Silva and James Milner, and Pellegrini insisted how the defender seriously isn’t assured of returning in City’s next game, at Burnley, in ten days.
“It was identical reason with Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, Fernandinho, Samir Nasri, Edin Dzeko – it was important how to refresh the team, mentally and physically, after two difficult games once we didn’t develop the results we wanted,” said Pellegrini. “It was a superb moment to do this.
“It wasn’t a difficult decision because we was required to refresh they i decided, thinking about several things. We will have what goes on in the next game. We have now the weekend free but on Monday i will start thinking about the next game.
“Always once you lack the results you Fifa Coins XBOX would like, the next game is extremely difficult that is certainly why today it is important would have been to win several points. After that we played a normal game, we dominated, had good possession of the ball also it was necessary for they to help keep a clean sheet and try to dominate the experience from the beginning.”
