Manchester United defender and fan favourite Eric Bailly has claimed that Jose Mourinho is the best manager in the world & that he hopes he stays at the club for a long time.
Eric Bailly signed for Manchester United in the summer, but has suffered two injuries since then sidelining the Ivorian which has limited his game-time to just 10 Premier League starts this term.
Bailly, speaking with Sky Sports, was quick to defend the so called poor start from Manchester United and Jose Mourinho.
”He’s [Mourinho] a great manager, the best in the world, it is a pleasure to work and learn with him. I hope it continues like this and that I stay at United for a long time”
“I’m truly happy, with my team and my team-mates. Bit by bit, I’m getting to know more.”
Bailly signed for Manchester United from Villarreal where he had become a star player in recent seasons, picking up 46 appearances before earning a move to the Premier League.
In the interview, he added:
“From what I see, football in Spain, they also have a great League. La Liga is the best in the world, but here it is different, very direct, there is more contact and more strength”
“And like I said, little by little, and with more training under this manager, I hope to improve. Manchester is a nice place, I’m happy here.”
Great to hear that Eric Bailly is happy at Old Trafford.
