Bailly posts an update on his head injury
Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has provided a positive update on the head injury that he sustained during Sunday’s Emirates FA Cup semi-final.
Having already collided with Blues defender Kurt Zouma, Bailly then clashed heads with team-mate Harry Maguire and required medical attention straight away.
United fans around the world have been understandably concerned about Bailly’s welfare and, in an effort to reassure supporters, the centre-back posted a personal update on social media.
“Thank you for all the messages of support,” Bailly writes in a post for Twitter and Instagram.
“I am ok, it was just a scare. I feel the pain of yesterday's defeat even more. But we have to get back up and refocus on the two big games we have this week.”
After such an injury, Bailly is presumably a doubt for United’s penultimate match of the Premier League season, against West Ham at Old Trafford on Wednesday night.
However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could provide more details on Eric's condition and availability on Tuesday morning when he holds a press conference to preview that important game.
