Solskjaer responds to Eric Bailly rumours

Reports have claimed that Manchester United defender Eric Bailly isn’t in good terms with manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and is keen to leave the club at the end of the season.

The Ivorian is reportedly unimpressed with his lack of game time, and believes that in the games where he has impressed, the manager has still dropped him off to the bench thereafter.

At the end of the season, Bailly will have a year left in his contract, and according to reports, he’s not keen on signing a new contract.

However, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reacted to the situation and claims that there is no issue wrong, and a contract is on the table.

Asked if he could shed any light on the situation surrounding Bailly, Solskjaer explained: “Eric has played well when he’s played.

“I know there’s been speculations, we’re talking to him about his contract. I don’t see any issues really.”

Bailly has been absent since testing positive for coronavirus while away with Ivory Coast on international duty last month, and Solskjaer is hopeful to call on the 27-year-old soon enough.

He went on: “Eric has been isolating back home in the Ivory Coast, he’s back to England now.

“We hope that he can be available for the weekend, hopefully he can train [on Friday] depending on how he feels within himself.

“But he’s had his [coronavirus] tests so we need to get the conformation that he’s still negative.”
