Eric Bailly delivers the latest update on his fitness levels after the Manchester United defender's disappointing knee injury
Eric Bailly has take to social media to thank Manchester United’s fans for their support as he bids to make a return to action for the Red Devils as soon as possible following his injury.
The defender, who signed for the Red Devils from Villarreal in the summer transfer window, suffered a knee injury in the 4-0 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea on Sunday afternoon.
Bailly is now set to endure a spell on the sidelines as he recovers from the setback while his Manchester United team-mates look to steer themselves back into good form.
The defender says that he is likely to be out of action for around two months, which would be a significant blow to United, with Bailly having been a regular fixture in the first team since his summer transfer.
The Ivory Coast international posted the picture above of himself in recovery mode on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “I wanted to thank you for all the messages of support that I received since the injury!
“I hope to be able to play again for United and The Elephants before 2 months, God willing. 🙏🏾 Thanks for always being there!”
Manchester United return to Premier League action with a home clash against Burnley this weekend.
