Bailly worried about his United future

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is reportedly worried about his long-term future at Old Trafford after failing to make an appearance for more than three weeks.

The Ivory Coast international became a regular after his return from an ankle injury and he featured in United's stunning 3-2 comeback win over Manchester City last month.

However, he has since been frozen out of Mourinho's plans and the centre-back has been given no explanation from the manager for his recent snub, The Mirror claims.

It is added Bailly's omission has come as a surprise for many United players and the Ivorian is 'desperate to get back in the team' for the final run-in which includes an FA Cup final against Chelsea.

Bailly joined the Red Devils from Spanish club Villareal in the summer of 2016. He has since suffered a couple of long-term injuries which have hampered his chances of claiming a regular starting spot.
