Manchester City captain Vincent Kompany has been injured for nearly two and a half years in total since joining the club.
City boss Pep Guardiola revealed Kompany had suffered knee ligament damage before Wednesday's clash with Borussia Monchengladbach, and on Friday he confirmed the Belgium defender is facing six weeks out.
It's the latest in a long line of fitness problems. In total, the 30-year-old has now been sidelined for 260 days this year since suffering a calf strain during the festive period, followed by further injuries to his thigh and groin.
Since joining City from German side Hamburg in 2008, Kompany has been sidelined for a total of 878 days from 37 injuries, according to Physioroom.
The Belgium defender has suffered most from calf and shin damage, missing nearly 351 days from 14 setbacks, followed by two thigh injuries totalling 196 days.
In May this year, Kompany underwent thigh muscle surgery which kept him out of action until September, having previously suffered a two-month lay off from a thigh strain in October 2013.
