On-loan Man Utd star Eric Bailly 'banned for SEVEN games' for kung-fu kick that saw rival rushed to hospital | The Sun
MANCHESTER UNITED loanee Eric Bailly has reportedly been handed a SEVEN-GAME ban for a horror kung-fu kick.
The 28-year-old was sent off earlier this month while in French Cup action for Marseille against fourth-tier side Hyeres.
Bailly's chest-high kick saw his opponent taken to hospital.
And the defender has now been handed a seven-game ban, according to French outlet La Provence.
Hyeres star Moussa N’Diaye was stretchered off the field after the challenge and taken to hospital by ambulance.
Reports in France claimed N'Diaye suffered broken ribs, as well as "lung and liver pain".

The on loan Manchester United man has already missed Ligue 1 wins over Troyes and Lorient.
But is now set to be banned for another five games.
Bailly was given his marching orders in the 15th minute of Marseille's 2-0 French Cup win over Hyeres on January 7th.
