Bailly: “I can’t wait to start”

Jose Mourinho’s first signing as Manchester United Manager, Eric Bailly, has posted a training video on his official Instagram account and has admitted he can’t wait to start the new season as a Red Devil.

The Ivory Coast international signed for United from Villarreal on the June 6th and while the transfer is still subject to him obtaining a work permit, he will soon meet his new team-mates when the players return to work at the Aon Training Complex next week.

Judging by the video that Bailly has uploaded to his Instagram, which shows him working tirelessly on a treadmill, the 22-year old is concentrating hard on his fitness ahead of his first day at the club.

Speaking during his first ever interview with MUTV, Bailly said, “I think it is very important I settle in quickly. I hope that with the coaching staff and the help of my team-mates that this process will be as quick as possible.”

“It is important to pick up the dynamic and the tempo of the football here as soon as the season starts, and as I say, hopefully with the help of everyone here I can do that quickly.”
