UEFA have suspended Manchester United defender Eric Bailly for three games following his red card in their Europa League semi-final, second leg game with Celta Vigo.
The 23 year old was initially handed a one-match ban following a brawl in the final minutes of the second leg at Old Trafford that ruled him out of the victory over Ajax in the final.
The Ivory Coast international was sent off after clashing with Celta’s former Manchester City striker John Guidetti, with Facundo Roncaglia subsequently red carded for retaliation.
But following a UEFA hearing, Bailly’s ban has been extended to three games, meaning he will miss the Super Cup against Real Madrid in Macedonia on August 8 and United’s first game of the Champions League group stages.
