Football fans have been on social media alleging that Manchester United defender, Eric Bailly, 79th minute red card against Bournemouth during their domestic league clash at Old Trafford yesterday was a deliberate one. – The match was won by the Red Devils by four goals to one.
They Alleged that the Ivorian launched into a needless two foot tackle on sighting his team mate, Maroune Fellaini, warming up on the side line and readying to come on.
As a result of the sending off, the Belgian was was returned to the bench with England International, Phil Jones, coming on Antony Martial’s place.
What they are saying:
Fair play. Bailly saw Fellaini about to come on. Two foots someone and Fellaini sits down. Team player.
