“Undisciplined behaviour” – Man United praised for terminating former player’s contract



| Last Updated:


Manchester United have been praised for terminating the contract of Eric Bailly after his behaviour landed him in hot water at Turkish club Beşiktaş.

Eric Bailly‘s career at Manchester United was rather iconic, with the player becoming a fan favourite for his reckless but often effective style of defending.

However, his time at Old Trafford was littered with injury issues, and he was deemed surplus to requirements by Erik ten Hag, who allowed the player to head on loan to Marseille last season before his contract was terminated early in the recent summer window.

Bailly then secured himself a move to Turkish Süper Lig side Beşiktaş, but he has now run into problems with the team.

According to Tele1, Bailly was sent away by club technical director Burak Yilmaz “after an altercation with Tayfur Bingöl” at half-time in a game against Antalyaspor, and in general has caused problems with his “undisciplined behaviour”.

He has also missed six games this season through injury, where, according to Sabah, the player has “made excuses about injuries in some matches, depending on his mood”.

It is also described that he is having communication problems with his teammates and is claiming he is in “constant pain”.

Manchester United have been praised by Sport Witness for their decision to let Bailly go for free after signing him for £30 million in 2016 under Jose Mourinho.

“It seems Manchester United got rid of Bailly at the right time,” they said. Bailly has been ‘sidelined’ alongside four other players for poor performances and attitudes.
