The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern have been awaiting the return of impressive Ivorian Eric Bailly…
The defender impressed during his early days in Manchester, before a cruel list of injuries began to hamper the defender’s progress.
He missed out throughout much of November and suffered another injury last month – leaving many in the Transfer Tavern concerned that the defender’s injury problems could cause issues going forward.
These fears were hoping to be allayed on Monday night, with Bailly set to return to action with the Man Utd reserve team – but as has so often been the case, Bailly has suffered another setback on his road to recovery.
As reported by Manchester Evening News, Bailly reportedly limped out of the game, and whilst he didn’t head down the tunnel for treatment – he did reportedly spend the rest of the game with strapping on his foot.
This has come as a huge blow to the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern, many of whom have been longing for Bailly’s return. The duo of Rojo and Jones have done well this season, but neither are quite at the Ivorian’s level – and the fans in the pub think that Bailly is only going to make the side better.
Bailly has been impressive when available this season, as the video below shows…
Man Utd have been on a good run of form as of late, but Mourinho will surely be longing for the return of his most impressive central defender.
