Mourinho on Bailly: Lets Wait a bit

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has said defender Eric Bailly may need surgery on a "serious" ankle injury.

The 23-year-old centre-back, a £30m summer from Villarreal, who was injured while on international duty with the Ivory Coast, has not played for United since the defeat at Stamford Bridge on 5 November.

"I don't want to be so pessimistic. I want to leave it with a doctor," Mourinho said.
"We are trying a conservative treatment. If the conservative treatment is not resulting, probably he will have a surgery procedure but let's wait a little bit more."
Chris Smalling and Phil Jones started Wednesday's 1-0 win over Bournemouth, and Mourinho said he was happy with his options at centre-back.
"During the whole season, we've had problems with central defenders but because the number is four or five, we manage always to have [players available] and Chris Smalling is playing amazingly well for seven or eight matches in a row maybe, so we are fine."
Mourinho would want to have all players available particularly after the Manchester derby defeat which many are attributing to the absence of record signing Paul Pogba.
