Eric Bailly is unhappy with Jose Mourinho after he was left out of Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday, according to reports.
The 24-year-old failed to make United’s matchday squad for the victory at Old Trafford and has not made an appearance since the 3-2 win over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on April 7.
According to the Daily Mirror, the Ivory Coast international ‘has been left worried’ over his future and is ‘unhappy’ with Mourinho freezing him out of the team.
The report also claims that United’s players are also surprised by Mourinho’s decision to exclude Bailly from their matchday squads.
Bailly missed United’s 1-0 defeat to West Brom due to illness but returned to the squad for the 2-0 win over Bournemouth, although he was left on the bench.
Victor Lindelof was selected ahead of Bailly for the 2-1 win over Arsenal on Sunday, and Mourinho admitted last month that he favours the Swede when he want more ‘technical quality’ in defence.
‘Normally, we are going to have more of the ball and, normally, it’s when we need somebody from the back to add extra technical quality in the middle of the back [four],’ said the United manager.
