Vanden Borre, who is working on his return at Anderlecht, suffered a hamstring injury this week in a friendly match. After further investigations, it now appears that the 32-year-old rear right has a muscle crack, according to The newspapaer. As a result, he will have to stay aside for a few weeks. A comeback is therefore not yet imminent.
The early arrival of Kompany was also striking. “Kompany is fine,” Vercauteren immediately reassured. “We just have to make sure he doesn’t go too far. He knows his body best and while others need a lot of training, Vincent can sometimes do a little less. That way he stays sharp. I don’t mind.”
