  • Kompany injured as Anderlecht lose again Kompany injured as Anderlecht lose again

    Vincent Kompany was substituted after suffering an injury on Friday as Anderlecht lost again.

    The former Manchester City captain saw his role as player-manager for his first professional club change this week.

    It was confirmed Kompany will now act as captain on matchdays with first-team coach Simon Davies in charge of tactics.

    But after Anderlecht took two points from their first four games, the switch failed to yield an immediate improvement at Genk on Friday.

    Mbwana Samatta scored the only goal of the game to earn last season's Belgian champions a narrow 1-0 victory.

    And to make matters worse for Kompany, the Belgium centre-back limped off with 15 minutes to go after seemingly suffering a muscle injury.

    Kompany is due to play in his City testimonial on September 11, but his participation in that game may now be in doubt.

    Manchester City Legends will take on a Premier League All-Stars XI featuring players including Rafael van der Vaart.

  • Ashley Williams joins Bristol City on short-term deal Ashley Williams joins Bristol City on short-term deal

    Former Everton defender Ashley Williams has joined Bristol City on a short-term deal.

    Williams, who was left out of the Wales squad this week, had been without a club since being released by Everton at the end of last season.

    Bristol City have the option to extend the deal if the centre-back impresses at Ashton Gate before January.

    "I'd like to offer Ashley a very warm welcome," head coach Lee Johnson told the club's website. "His experience will be invaluable, both on and off the pitch, and we're all looking forward to getting to work with him."

    Williams, who turned 35 on Friday, could be in the squad for Saturday's Championship game against Hull City, although he admits he is unlikely to be fully fit until next month.

    "I need a bit of work after missing pre-season," he said. "I haven't played since the internationals [in June], but we've got a plan and I'll be working on that over the next couple of weeks.

    "There's a good set of players, nice guys first and foremost with a very organised manager who sets the weeks up brilliantly."

  • Icardi given no.7 shirt as Inter stay looks likely Icardi given no.7 shirt as Inter stay looks likely

    Mauro Icardi has been given the number seven shirt for Inter this season as it grows increasingly likely he will stay at the club.

    The Argentina international saw his number nine jersey given to new signing Romelu Lukaku as talks over a transfer away from San Siro continued.

    However, with an exit beginning to look unlikely, the striker has been given a new squad number for the 2019-20 Serie A season, which starts this weekend.

    Icardi was told to look for a new club by chief executive Giuseppe Marotta in July and was excluded from the club's pre-season tour of Asia.

    The 26-year-old, who was stripped of the club captaincy last season, was tipped to move to Juventus in a part-exchange deal involving Paulo Dybala, but no such agreement has been reached.

    Most recently, he was linked with Ligue 1 side Monaco, only for wife and agent Wanda Nara to rule out such a transfer.

    Nara seemed to hint at Icardi staying at Inter with a tweet on Friday showing her photographed with other wives and girlfriends of Nerazzurri players, captioned 'another year together'.
