Mourinho pissed over Eric Bailly's departure
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is frustrated with Ivory Coast after they refused to delay Eric Bailly’s African Nations Cup departure by 24 hours.

Bailly returned to United’s starting XI in Saturday’s 2-1 win over Middlesbrough, and Mourinho was hoping he would be available to take on West Ham on Monday as well.

That could not happen without the consent of his national side, who are preparing for the tournament in Gabon, and coach Michel Dussuyer was not willing to take the risk.

United should not be harmed in the short term, with Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo ready to restore their successful partnership after being rested for the New Year’s Eve victory. Chris Smalling is also fit, but Mourinho is concerned about a lack of numbers at the back.

“Bailly is leaving — he goes to the national team,” Mourinho said. “He has to be with them on Jan. 2. We asked them for him to be on Jan. 3 but they refused, so he cannot play against West Ham.

“With these kind of decisions they are controlling every second, so for sure they are going to win the African Cup. I know I lose Bailly for a month so I’m going to have Smalling, Rojo, Jones … three players for eight matches.”

Bailly, 22, has had a hit and miss start to his United career, starting the season strongly before a dip in form and fitness. He is still delighted to be part of the Red Devils set-up and last week lavished praise on Mourinho, who enters 2017 on the back of six successive wins.

“He is a great manager, the best in the world,” Bailly said.

Mohamed Salah Hopes to Score against Manchester United

Mohamed Salah would be looking forward to getting at least a goal against Manchester United when they meet this weekend.

If Salah will complete a remarkable record of scoring against all the top six sides in the English Premier League this season.

The Egyptian is the joint top scorer in the division with 24 goals, which include strikes against Manchester City, Tottenham, Chelsea and Arsenal, with the Red Devils the only side missing in the top-six list.

Sarah, 25, is willing to complete the haul in Saturday’s encounter at Old Trafford.

Recall that the summer signing fired blank against Jose Mourinho’s side when both sides clashed in October’s draw; a tie most remembered for David De Gea’s stunning save from a Joel Matip effort.

“I remember it [De Gea’s save]. I also missed an easy chance in that game, but he is great,” Salah told Sky Sports.
