Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has given supporters a boost by confirming that his latest injury is “not too serious”.
The Ivory Coast international has arguably been one of United’s best players this season, slotting into the defence comfortably following his transfer from Villarreal in the summer.
The Red Devils were dealt a blow when Bailly was sidelined for six weeks with a knee injury, and he had only just returned to playing when he suffered a knock against Crystal Palace on Wednesday evening.
Manager Jose Mourinho started the 22-year-old at right-back at Selhurst Park and after receiving treatment twice during the 2-1 win for United, Bailly was eventually substituted in the 52nd minute.
There were concerns that the Ivorian had suffered a similar problem to his left knee, but the man himself has eased fears by taking to social media.
Bailly has not given a timeframe for his return, but he is positive that he will not be out of action for long.
Happy to announce that my injury isn't too serious. Hope to be able to help my team again soon! Thank you for the support!???????? pic.twitter.com/plXfkS7nSk
