Kompany is down and out after nine minutes as Manchester City face Real Madrid


Nine minutes into the clash which could secure Manchester City a place in the Champions League final, captain Vincent Kompany went down injured.

And not just down, he stayed down and eventually hobbled off to be replaced by Eliaquim Mangala.

With the greatest of respect to Mangala, City fans were not happy with the forced change.

But that didn't stop the jokes coming in from elsewhere...

Although people now think that's the last we've seen of Kompany in a City shirt.

And no-one wanted this move to be "perfected".

As if being without Kompany wasn't hard enough, Gareth Bale put the home side ahead after 20 minutes.
