A few days ago, Eric Bailly was guilty of a very bad gesture on a player from Hyères (National 2) in the Coupe de France. The Ivorian has also taken 7 suspension games.
Almike Moussa N’Diaye is not ready to forget the Coupe de France meeting between Hyères andOM. In addition to having had the chance to face the Phocaeans, the Mauritanian international will also have suffered a terrible shock after an uncontrolled intervention by Eric Bailly. Affected in the liver, a kidney and the ribs, N’Diaye had 30 days of ITT… And his recovery before returning to a football field will last a few more months. For his part, Bailly was not spared, receiving a 7-game suspension. Aware of his very dangerous gesture, the former Manchester United had quickly made the trip to the hospital to hear from his victim. Luckily, the latter does not want him more than that.
Bailly, the victim comes to his defense
I find the decision of the Disciplinary Committee very unfortunate @Ligue1UberEats to give 7 games of suspension to @ericbailly24 for this dangerous gesture. Where others only got two games?!?!
What are the explanations?! 🤷🏾♂️ pic.twitter.com/eSokye7vEf

In an interview given to RMC, Almike Moussa N’Diaye said more about his state of health but also about his feelings about the situation with Bailly. ” Regarding my injuries, they are still alive to this day, especially in the liver and ribs. I recover slowly. It’s not easy mentally, but I’m hanging on thanks to the support of those around me (…). The shock and the minutes that followed were traumatic, it’s true. The following days were also emotionally trying. (…) For the moment, I have not resumed any physical activity. The doctors recommend a recovery not before two to three months, but it will depend on the evolution of my state of health. Bailly? I felt him very touched and he greatly apologized for his gesture. This allowed us to discuss and since then, he also regularly hears from me. Admittedly, the shock was brutal and the injuries are heavy, but I absolutely do not blame him, because I am convinced that he had no intention of hurting me (…)”, in particular indicated the player of Hyères, who did not want to spread out too much on the sanction given by the FFF to Eric Bailly. In any case, the long-term loss of the Ivorian is certainly not good news for OM and Igor Tudor.
