Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

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.
