Bailly handed three-match ban

Manchester United centre back Eric Bailly will miss next month's Uefa Super Cup against Real Madrid after Uefa handed the Ivorian international a three-match European ban on Monday.

Bailly, 23, was sent off for violent conduct in the second leg of United's Europa League semi-final victory over Celta Vigo in May for his part in a melee in the final minutes of a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.

He was suspended for the 2-0 win over Ajax in the final and will sit out two more games, including the Uefa Super Cup clash against Champions League winners Real Madrid in Macedonia on Aug 8 and their first Champions League game. - AFP
