Our options at the center-back position went from bad to worse with the official news that Eric Bailly will miss 4-5 months recovering from the injury he sustained versus Spurs.

More from the official Manchester United website:

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is set for a spell on the sidelines after undergoing an operation on Tuesday morning.

The Ivory Coast international injured his knee in the International Champions Cup victory over Tottenham and missed the subsequent flight to Oslo for the friendly against Kristiansund.

Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed at his post-match press conference, following the 1-0 victory in his homeland, that the central defender is unlikely to return until around Christmas time.

“He’s had an operation,” Ole said. “He’ll miss the best part of four or five months. Hopefully, we’ll get him back around about Christmas.

”It was positive news from the surgeon, he had the operation this morning. He was positive it was all repaired and that he’ll be fine.“
Everybody at United wishes Eric a speedy recovery.

Maybe it’s time for Eddy “Moneybags” Woodward to overpay for a Slab-Head…

About Alex 107 Articles
My name is Alex and I am a co-host of the American Red Devils podcast, and discovered the greatest football club in the world freshman year in highschool, after playing FIFA '99 on Nintendo 64. Originally it was the red hair of Paul Scholes that caught my attention, given the four Gingers in my family, but I never knew a redhead could ball like Scholesy. However, what really sucked me in was the arrival of Wayne Rooney at the club, to this day my all-time favorite player. I was lucky enough to witness my first game at Old Trafford in '07 while studying abroad, witnessing the 4-0 thrashing of Wigan. I rented a car and drove down for the day from Edinburgh to Manchester and back (NYC to Boston twice), driving on the wrong side of the car and the road! Lucky enough to be in Sunderland to see Zlatan's last United goal and in London to see Matic's stoppage time screamer at Selhurst. Honored and privileged to be a Manchester United fan.
