Man Utd flop who left this summer has now been 'banished' from his new club after just 98 days

Man Utd flop who left this summer has now been 'banished' from his new club after just 98 days

The defender only joined in September.

A former Manchester United player has been 'banished' from his new club following his switch away from Old Trafford last summer.

Man United discarded a host of players during last summer's transfer window as Erik ten Hag looked to trim his squad.

The likes of David De Gea, Dean Henderson, Alex Telles, Anthony Elanga and Fred, among others, left the club.

Not to mention Eric Bailly, who joined the Red Devils from Villarreal in a deal worth £30 million in 2016.

He spent seven years at Man United before signing for Besiktas last September.

But his days in Turkey appear to be numbered after being 'banished' from the first-team.

On Monday, the Turkish giants announced that Bailly is one of five players who have been 'excluded from the squad'.

Besiktas' decision to 'banish' the five players comes after they lost 3-1 at home to rivals Fenerbahce.

Vincent Aboubakar, Valentin Rosier, Rachid Ghezzal and Jean Onana are also 'banished' from the squad.

Bailly being 'banished' comes just 98 days after his arrival.

A club statement read: "Information from our club. 5 players from our Football A Team have been excluded from the squad.

"Our Football Teams General Coordinator Samet Aybaba; He announced that Vincent Aboubakar, Valentin Rosier, Eric Bailly, Rachid Ghezzal and Jean Onana were excluded from the squad due to poor performance and incompatibility within the team.

"Our work on the new staff structure continues. We respectfully present it to the public."

The Ivory Coast international has played just six games in all competitions this season.

Having only signed for the Turkish outfit, he could be once again looking for a new side ahead of the transfer window reopening next month.

Besiktas' defeat to Fenerbahce was their fifth league defeat of the 2023/24 campaign.

They occupy fifth place, 14 points adrift of league leaders Fenerbahce.
