Bailly was seen marching towards team-mate Tayfur Bingöl before reaching out and pulling the midfielder by his shoulder. Bingöl was swung around and met by the Ivory Coast international, who was clearly fuming at an incident earlier in the match. Bailly – Tayfur Bingöl olayında Antalya’lı oyuncunun Gedson Fernandes’i uyarması ve Gedson’un olaya hemen müdahale etmesi.

I apologise to the manager, my team-mates and Besiktas family for my mistake. Heads up and focus on the next one.’Interim manager Burak Yilmaz later confirmed that Bailly’s substitution was due to his ‘inappropriate’ actions.Yilmaz said: ‘There was a problem with Eric Bailly during the half-time. That’s why I took him off. ‘There is no injury situation. I took him out of the game due to an inappropriate move.’ Besiktas lost the match after Antalyaspor scored three goals in 12 minutes after half-time Bailly signed a one-year deal with the Turkish giants after leaving Man United in the summerBailly left Old Trafford after seven years in the summer, having originally joined the club for £30m from LaLiga side Villarreal in 2016.Bailly made 113 appearances for United in all competitions, scoring his one and only goal in a match with Swansea back in 2017. In a message on social media, Bailly wrote: ‘As I leave this club after many years of incredible memories, outstanding teammates, and trophies, I want to express my profound gratitude. ‘This chapter may be closing, but the friendships and memories will forever remain in my heart.
