MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says Eric Bailly will be sidelined for up to three months after ankle surgery.

The center back has not played since the Nov. 5 trip to Chelsea in the Premier League after being injured while on international duty with the Ivory Coast.

Mourinho says Bailly "goes to surgery, the decision is made. I don't say (he's out) for the rest of the season but it's for the next two or three months."

United is second in the Premier League, 11 points behind Manchester City.
