Man Utd boss Solskjaer admits Bailly season over

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits Eric Bailly's season is over after being injured in their draw with Chelsea.

A collision with Mateo Kovacic on 68 minutes forced Bailly off with a knee injury.

"He will need a scan tomorrow but I don't think it is the worst knee injury you can have," Solskjaer told manutd.com. “He will be out for the rest of the season, I don't think we will see him again before next season.

"But he is a warrior, he played well today, he was calm, he was composed and it was just unfortunate that he had to come off."

Marcus Rashford also collected a shoulder setback.

Solskjaer added: “Rashy's struggled with his shoulder and he came through an hour, but couldn't do more."
