Ivory Coast refuse Mourinho’s request to delay Bailly departure

Jose Mourinho has been left frustrated by the Ivory Coast’s decision not to delay Eric Bailly’s departure for the Africa Cup of Nations.

The Manchester United defender started against Middlesbrough on Saturday and played a role as the hosts came from 1-0 down in the 84th minute to win 2-1.

The Portuguese revealed United asked Ivory Coast to delay Bailly’s arrival till Tuesday, January the 3rd.

That way he would be available for the Monday trip to West Ham.

But Ivory Coast FA have insisted the year old arrives camp on Monday.
