- Pellegrini throws down gauntlet to Man City skipper Kompany
Manuel Pellegrini has warned his club captain Vincent Kompany that he is not assured of regaining his place in Manchester City's starting line-up after he was left out of his side's 2-0 victory over Leicester at the Etihad Stadium. The Belgian World Cup central defender was the most high-profile victim of sweeping changes made by Pellegrini in the wake of successive and costly defeats to Barcelona and Liverpool. Kompany's poor form cost him his place for a victory that City laboured to record, through goals late in each half from David Silva and James Milner, and Pellegrini insisted that the defender is not assured of returning in City's next game, at Burnley, in 10 days. "It was the same reason with Pablo Zabaleta, Vincent Kompany, Fernandinho, Samir Nasri, Edin Dzeko - it was important today to refresh the team, mentally and physically, after two difficult games when we didn't have the results we wanted," said Pellegrini.
