Bailly ex­pects two months off

The Sun (Malaysia) - - SPORTS -

MANCH­ESTER UNITED cen­tre­back Eric Bailly ex­pects to re­turn within two months af­ter in­jur­ing his knee dur­ing his side’s 4-0 Premier League de­feat at Chelsea, he said yes­ter­day.

“I wanted to thank you for all the mes­sages of sup­port that I re­ceived since the in­jury!” the Ivory Coast de­fender wrote on his of­fi­cial Face­book page.

“I hope to be able to play again for United and The Elephants be­fore 2 months, God will­ing. Thanks for al­ways be­ing there!”

The mes­sage was ac­com­pa­nied by a pic­ture of Bailly sit­ting in the pas­sen­ger seat of a car at United’s train­ing ground, with his right leg in a brace.

A close-sea­son sign­ing from Vil­lar­real, Bailly limped off early in the sec­ond half at Stam­ford Bridge on Sun­day, with Mar­cos Rojo com­ing on to take his place.

“He is in­jured and I’m afraid he’s badly in­jured,” man­ager Jose Mour­inho said in his post-match press con­fer­ence.

“In his knee, in the lig­a­ment area, he feels that is re­ally bad.” – AFP
