Eric Bailly out of Manchester United’s Europa League final against Ajax

Eric Bailly will miss the Europa League final after being sent off for Manchester United against Celta Vigo in their semi-final.

The Ivory Coast international put an arm out towards former Manchester City striker John Guidetti before a scuffle kicked off on the middle of the Old Trafford pitch.

Facundo Roncaglia was also given his marching orders, although it’s not entirely clear what for, and was chased by Bailly before he was separated by his other team-mates.

United could of course appeal the decision but with Bailly catching the ex-Celtic striker, who certainly made the most of it, around the neck area, it seems unlikely that it would be successful.

Antonio Valencia and Paul Pogba also reacted angrily during the commotion, seemingly lashing out at comments by either Guidetti or Roncaglia.

Earlier on the night, Marouane Fellaini had headed Manchester United into the lead after a sumptuous ball from Marcus Rashford.

Roncaglia had equalised on the night moments before the incident all kicked off, before Guidetti missed a last minute sitter.

But United made it through, although if they’re to beat Ajax to win the title and qualify for the Champions League, they will have to do it without Bailly.

For a better society
