BREAKING: ERIC BAILLY HANDED THREE MATCH BAN BY UEFA

Manchester United and Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly has been given a three-match ban for the red card he had against Celta Vigo in the UEFA Europa League.

Bailly, 23, was sent off for taking a swipe at Celta Vigo’s striker John Guidetti which also saw Facundo Roncaglia dismissed for retaliating.

He missed the UEFA Europa League final which Manchester United beat Ajax Amsterdam 2-0 at Stockholm to win the title.

UEFA has released a statement extending the suspension to include two more games.

Bailly will then miss the UEFA Super Cup against Real Madrid on 8 August and also the group stage opener of Manchester United.

The Ivory Coast international’s case does not qualify for an appeal because European Football’s Governing body, UEFA only overturns decisions made by the referee in cases of mistaken identity.

Manchester United has also been warned of future conduct by UEFA for a late kick-off to the semi-final.
