Manchester United loanee Eric Bailly is handed a SEVEN game ban after being sent off for kung fu-kicking a fourth-tier opponent in the chest during Marseille’s French Cup match – which sent the player to hospital

Manchester United loanee Eric Bailly has been banned for seven games for kung-fu-kicking an opponent in the chest during a French Cup match.

The incident happened in the 15th minute of Marseille’s 2-0 win over fourth tier Hyeres when Bailly and Almike Moussa N’Diaye both went for a bouncing ball.

Bailly was just about to get the ball and couldn’t stop his momentum when he crashed into N’Diaye, kicking him in the right side of his chest.

After the opponent was flattened, the referee had no choice but to show Bailly a direct red card.

This has now been reported by a French publication Provencethat the 28-year-old has been suspended for seven games.

Bailly has already been suspended for two games after sitting out Ligue 1 wins against Troyes and Lorient.

However, it means he will miss tomorrow’s French Cup game against Rennes, as well as Ligue 1 clashes against Monaco, Nantes, Nice and Clermont Foot.

N’Diaye was taken off the pitch on a stretcher and taken to hospital after the horrific collision, with Le Parisien reporting that he had broken ribs, as well as lung and liver pain

Bailly visited N’Diaye in the hospital to check on him and apologize for the attack.

N’Diaye has since left the hospital but is expected to be out for several months.

Hyeres president Mourad Boudjellal said Bailly apologized “150 times” for his tackle and also offered his jersey.

The Ivorian defender has earned a reputation for tumbling from the sublime to the ridiculous during his six years at Old Trafford, and fans slammed him after footage of the challenge went viral earlier this month.

“Eric Bailly does Eric Bailly things,” one fan wrote alongside a facepalm emoji.

Another fan also seemed worried about N’Diaye, writing: “The same Eric Bailly who just got a straight red and put his boot right through a Hyeres player’s chest. Looks like he literally broke his ribs.”

Meanwhile, other fans saw the funny side of Bailly’s misfortune as he got his tackle horribly wrong.

“Hold me Eric Bailly will never be unfunny,” added a supporter. “Eric Bailly direct red card LMFAO,” wrote another.

His season at Marseille has not gone according to plan so far, having been limited to just six Ligue 1 appearances.

The French giants are committed to buying him from United in the summer if certain conditions are met.
