Ivory Coast International and Manchester United defender, Eric Bailly will miss his club’s UEFA Super Cup match against Real Madrid on August 8 after his European suspension was extended.
UEFA’s disciplinary panel imposed a three-match ban for violent conduct after Bailly was sent off late in United’s Europa League semi-final, second-leg game against Celta Vigo in May.
Bailly missed his team’s 2-0 win over Ajax in the Europa League final when serving the first game of the ban but will now also sit out the Super Cup and his side’s opening Champions League clash.
The Champions League group stage begins in September, and United will know their first opponent when the draw is made in Monaco on August 24.
