Ivory Coast International Eric Bailly has tested positive for Covid-19, as confirmed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Speaking after the 2-1 win over Brighton, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer confirmed: “Eric [Bailly] won’t be with us for a little while. He has tested positive for Covid-19.”
Bailly was called up for the Ivory Coast squad during the international break and this is a massive blow for Manchester United with fixtures coming thick and fast in the coming weeks. To make matters worse, Victor Lindelof is still struggling with a back problem.
That leaves Harry Maguire and Axel Tuanzebe as center-back options till Bailly recovers. He will have to self-isolate for the next two weeks.
