Kompany's has one stipulation for his BBC Euro 2016 appearances

Vincent Kompany will be on punditry duty for Euro 2016.

The Manchester City and Belgium captain will miss the finals through injury, but will still be in France as part of the BBC's coverage, according to Belgian media.

However, he won't be providing any insight into the Belgian team, as Kompany won't be on punditry duty for any of the Red Devil's games.

Belgium, one of the favourites for the tournament, are in Group E alongside Italy, Sweden and the Republic of Ireland, and begin their campaign against the Azzurri on June 13 in Lyon.Belgium v Australia - International FriendlyKompany, who is set to cover six games for the BBC, will join their punditry team which already includes Alan Shearer, Rio Ferdinand, Robbie Savage and Thierry Henry in France, with Gary Lineker hosting.

It seems somewhat strange that the Belgian captain won't be covering his side's games, considering he has such a unique position amongst the pundits and could offer unrivalled insight into the team.

However, Belgian media are reporting that Kompany wants to attend Belgium's games and support his teammates. Which is fair enough, but it also means viewers will be relying on Savage and Henry to offer insight into the the Red Devils.Click snap
