Video: Ex-Celtic Star John Guidetti Involved as Eric Bailly Gets Sent Off for Man United

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly was sent off during the Europa League semi-final tonight, after he was involved in an altercation with Celta Vigo’s John Guidetti.

The incident happened mere moments after Facundo Roncaglia had scored for the visitors at Old Trafford, a goal which meant the La Liga side only needed one more to knock United out.

Shortly after Vigo’s goal, Bailly was spotted aiming a fist at Guidetti, with the former Celtic and Manchester City striker going down in an embarrassing heap.

Seeing his teammate hit the deck, Roncaglia ran over and appeared to raise his hands to the Ivory Coast international:

The referee reacted to the scuffle by showing a red card to both players, meaning Bailly will miss the Europa League final in Stockholm against Ajax.

Interestingly, Guidetti would later miss the chance to scupper Jose Mourinho’s side’s European aspirations, meaning United secured a 2-1 victory on aggregate.
