Manchester City's Champions League exit could have a nasty postscript after skipper Vincent Kompany left the Etihad Stadium on crutches.

Kompany took a knock during the second half of last night's 1-1 draw with Real Madrid and, although the Belgian was able to complete the game, he was not moving freely. Manager Roberto Mancini can only hope Kompany has not sustained too much damage, particularly with a visit to Chelsea looming on Sunday.

"The opportunity to claim our place at the top of European football will come again," said Kompany on Twitter. "No sad faces, just the hunger to improve."
