Vincent Kompany's poor luck with injuries has struck again, ruling the former Manchester City captain out of his own testimonial.
The four-time Premier League winner was due to say farewell to the club by playing in a star-studded friendly at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday evening.
But, much in keeping with the latter half of his City career, the defender has been curtailed by a muscular problem, this time a hamstring issue.
During his 11 years at Etihad he cemented a place in the club and the city.
It was his testimonial match where he has promised the money it raises will go the homeless charity he set up.
