Man Utd defender feels unfairly treated by Mourinho

Here we go again!

There’s another Manchester United player reportedly unsettled at the club and considering his long-term future at Old Trafford due to harsh treatment from manager Jose Mourinho.

According to The Metro, Eric Bailly feels unfairly marginalised by Mourinho after an unconvincing start to the 2018/19 season.

The Ivory Coast international missed a number of games at the end of last season but looked likely to become the first choice this term after starting alongside Victor Lindelof in the first two games against Leicester City and Brighton & Hove Albion.

However, a woeful performance in the latter, a 3-2 defeat for the Reds, saw Bailly dropped for the next match at home to Tottenham Hotspur, with midfielder Ander Herrera preferred to him in a back three — a role the Spaniard never played before in his professional career and it showed.

The Metro now state this has led Bailly to consider his future with United and he’s far from the first to feel this way under Mourinho. Anthony Martial, Paul Pogba and even Luke Shaw have all had troublesome times under the Portuguese tactician.

The Daily Mirror suggests Pogba is still, in the long run, looking to leave the club, largely down to his strained relationship with the boss.
