INJURIES Good news from the training field: Vincent Kompany and Elias Cobbaut trained again this morning with the group. The two were missing in Ghent on Friday due to a minor injury. Kemar Lawrence also trained with his teammates for the first time.
Kompany suffered from stiffness in the calf at the end of last week. An ultrasound did not reveal anything, so he considered playing on Friday. For safety's sake, it was decided to take a rest. After all, there was some muscle fatigue.
Lawrence landed in Belgium on Friday. During the weekend he worked alone in fitness, yesterday he completed group training for the first time.
With Kompany, Cobbaut and Lawrence, Frank Vercauteren has a lot of extra options at the back. Youngsters Marco Kana and Killian Sardella, who did will in Ghent, will go to the bank again. Derrick Luckassen also has to fear for his place when all three of Kompany, Cobbaut and Lawrence are ready to play.
