Man United fans show love for Bailly on social media

Eric Bailly is a real character, and it certainly helps that he has been an absolute revelation since making the move to Manchester United in the summer of 2016.

Indeed, the Ivory Coast international was United’s best centre-back last term, and has recently returned to the fold following a period on the sidelines with an ankle problem.

The 24-year-old, who is believed to be on £75,000 a week at Old Trafford, is a little bit crazy, but that is exactly the reason why he is so popular with the United supporters.

That said, his performances on the field have also been outstanding, and Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho will not be regretting making the defender his first ever signing at Old Trafford.

It was actually Bailly’s birthday on Thursday, and United’s official Twitter account paid tribute to the defender.

As expected, the United supporters were out in force to express their views on the Ivorian, with many claiming that he is the best centre-back in the Premier League.
