Eric Bailly believes injury woes are behind him as he returns for Marseille – Man United News And Transfer News


Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly is confident he is free from the injury that interrupted his loan spell at Marseille.

As reported by Sport Witness, Bailly is confident he can finish the season strong in France after recovering from another injury setback.

The Ivory Coast native said he had problems at the start of the season against PSG and later found himself not at the physical level he needed in the Champions League games.

“I had physical problems against PSG.

But Bailly has been working closely with Marseille’s medical staff and is adamant the injury is behind him.

“Now it’s ready. I’ve done important work with the medical staff.”

The defender admitted he was frustrated by the injury, but now wants to play a key role in helping Marseille win the Ligue 1 title.

“I’m frustrated, but I’ve already gone through complicated situations. I hope I can play under the manager until the end of the season,” he added.

Marseille are now just five points behind leaders PSG and are well-positioned for the top spot with just one defeat in 12 league games.

PSG will visit the Stade Velodrome on Sunday evening. This match could be a pivotal match in the run to the Ligue 1 title.

On a personal note, Bailly’s future is uncertain beyond this season and Erik ten Hag is well-stocked as Old Trafford centre-back.

Bailly will be desperate to prove his worth in the second half of the season at Marseille. It would be a shop window opportunity for him to avoid returning to Manchester.
