Bailly ban very harsh: Mourinho
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho expressed surprise on Tuesday at the three-match ban that UEFA handed defender Eric Bailly on Monday. Ivorian Bailly was sent off for violent conduct in the second-leg of United's Europa League semifinal victory over Celta Vigo in May. He was suspended for the final, but will now also miss a further two games - including the August 8 European Super Cup clash against Real Madrid. "He's an important player for us who is not able to play the Super Cup and the first match of the Champions League group phase but not to play the Europa League final and the Super Cup is very, very harsh," said Mourinho.
