Jose Mourinho gives Manchester United star the cold shoulder, doesn’t explain why he’s been dropped

According to the Mirror, Eric Bailly is concerned about his Manchester United future after being frozen out by Jose Mourinho.

The player is seemingly unhappy by the situation but even we raised questions about Bailly’s disappearance on Sunday.

John Cross, author of the story, understands Jose Mourinho has given the Ivorian no explanation why he been dropped and was axed completely from the squad to face Arsenal on Sunday.

Bailly, 24, has not played since the Manchester derby when United came from behind to beat City and prolong their Premier League title celebrations.

The centre-back was in the frame to face West Brom, a game United surprisingly lost, but Mourinho later confirmed he missed out through illness, as per the Metro.

Bailly was one of Mourinho’s best performers last season but has struggled with injuries this term, but with Phil Jones missing against Arsenal, the boss called upon Victor Lindelof instead.
