Number of MUFC fans unhappy with Mourinho’s decision to overlook Eric Bailly for Young Boys clash

Writing on the wall?

Many fans thought Victor Lindelof’s injury would see Eric Bailly return to the starting eleven tonight for Manchester United’s UEFA Champions League clash against Young Boys.

But no… Jose Mourinho has opted to start Phil Jones instead.

The Ivory Coast international is arguably the best defender at the club, yet he cannot be trusted by the manager to play against a second rate Swiss side.

What does that say for Bailly’s future at Old Trafford?

This is what Twitter had to say about Bailly tonight.
