Belgian physio Lieven Maesschalck will help Manchester City skipper Vincent Kompany overcome a niggling calf injury.

Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has sought the help of Belgian physio Lieven Maesschalck as he continues his recovery from a persistent calf problem.

The 26-year-old has missed the last five games after aggravating the injury in the 1-0 FA Cup win over Stoke City.

Maesschalck, whom the centre-back knows from working with the Belgian national team, has also helped stars such as Andriy Shevchenko and Kaka.

According to The Mirror, he will fly out to Manchester for a week-long 'intensive treatment programme'.
