Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has eased fears about his fitness with a post on Instagram.
The centre back left the game against Chelsea early in the second half with what looked like a bad injury. However in the caption you can see below, he assures his fans that it will be a layoff of around two months.
While that is a significant period, and enough to give Jose Mourinho a headache just when he doesn’t need it, it’s a lot less severe than had been feared.
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! ????? // Je voulais vous remercier pour tous les messages de soutien que j'ai reçu depuis la blessure ! J'espère pouvoir jouer à nouveau pour United et les Éléphants d'ici 2 mois si Dieu le veut. ??Merci pour être toujours là ! ?????
