BAILLY BANNED MANCHESTER UNITED loanee Eric Bailly has reportedly been handed a SEVEN-GAME ban for a horror kung-fu kick.
The 28-year-old was sent off earlier this month while in French Cup action for Marseille against fourth-tier side Hyeres.
Eric Bailly has been handed a seven-game ban for this horror tackle
Bailly was immediately sent off for the tackle
Bailly got a tackle all wrong, missing the ball entirely and sending his studs into Hyeres star Moussa N’Diaye’s chest.
His chest-high kick saw N’Diaye taken to hospital.
And the defender has now been handed a seven-game ban, according to French outlet La Provence.
Hyeres star Moussa N’Diaye was stretchered off the field after the challenge and taken to hospital by ambulance.
Reports in France claimed N’Diaye suffered broken ribs, as well as “lung and liver pain”.
Bailly then visited the stricken N’Diaye in hospital following the tackle.
The on loan Manchester United man has already missed Ligue 1 wins over Troyes and Lorient since the red card.
But is now set to be banned for a further five games.
Bailly was given his marching orders in the 15th minute of Marseille’s 2-0 French Cup win over Hyeres on January 7th.
The Ivory Coast international joined Marseille on a season-long loan from United in the summer.
The French club have an obligation to buy Bailly if they qualify for the Champions League, and the defender makes a certain number of appearances.
But so far Bailly has seen his season disrupted by injury.
He has played just 12 games in all competitions.
