Last season, Manchester United made a genius signing when Jose Mourinho sanctioned a move for Eric Bailly. Not much was expected of the centre-half, but wow, what a player. He’s quick, strong in the tackle and such a front-footed defender. The Ivorian Vidic.
With pre-season tour looming, the 23-year-old took to Instagram to express his delight at being back at Carrington. He’ll no doubt be included in the squad that is flying out to the United States this coming Sunday, and he’ll be tasked with following up his brilliant debut season as a Red Devil.
Have a look at Bailly’s Instagram post here:
He’s fast turning into one of my favourite players at Manchester United. Off the field, he seems like a really nice chap and he plays with such happiness and enthusiasm.
Now we’ve also added Victor Lindelof to the mix, this is a young partnership that has the potential to become one that lasts for the best part of a decade. I just hope that they can gel from the off, and these upcoming friendlies will be a good time for them to get to learn the strengths and weaknesses of each other’s games.
Come the start opening weekend of the Premier League season, I’ve no doubts that Bailly will be on Mourinho’s team sheet.
