Jose Mourinho didn’t go as far as to say that Eric Bailly would not play again this season, but the United boss did imply the defender will be sidelined for a significant period.
Speaking after the 1-0 win over Bournemouth on Wednesday, Mourinho admitted Bailly had suffered a "serious" ankle injury while on international duty in November. "We are trying a conservative treatment," he said. "But, if [that fails], probably he will have a surgical procedure," although Mourinho was keen to stress that he is "not a doctor" and any diagnosis or timescale would be better coming from a qualified medical practitioner. The return of Marcos Rojo has helped to ease the burden while the improved form of Victor Lindelof is encouraging. Phil Jones and Chris Smalling are fit, for now at least, but it would be extremely naïve to think that the pair will remain that way for long given their recent history. Daley Blind is an option and Michael Carrick could also be deployed at centre-back once fully fit. Thu, Dec 14, 2017 05:14:00 AM
