​Man Utd defender Bailly fit for Europa League semi clash with Celta Vigo

Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly will be available for the Europa League first leg semi-final clash against Celta Vigo, reveals manager Jose Mourinho.

Manchester United will be squaring off against Celta Vigo in the first leg of the Europa League semi-finals at Balaidos on Sunday and the Red Devils' squad has been decimated due to injuries heading into the clash.

As a huge boost for United though, manager Jose Mourinho has revealed that defender Eric Bailly has recovered from the injury picked up against Swansea City on the weekend and the Ivorian is now fit to feature against Celta.

Mourinho told a press conference: "Bailly is ready to play. He is the kind of personality that fights against every problem it is impossible. He is ready to play."
