Watch: New Man United signing already out to impress Jose Mourinho
Eric Bailly is looking forward to starting life at Manchester United...
Eric Bailly is clearly determined to prove his worth to new Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho as he steps up his preparations for the new season.
The 22-year-old defender became the Portuguese coach’s first signing as United boss as Mourinho moved quickly to bring in his first recruit from Villarreal.
Bailly is now preparing to report for pre-season training at Carrington as he gears up for his first season in the Premier League.
And the defender is clearly intent on impressing his new manager, as he put in the work in his own time behind closed doors in the gym.
Bailly uploaded the video above of himself running on a treadmill on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “The countdown has begun. Can’t wait to start as a Red Devil!”
United moved quickly to appoint Mourinho as their new manager last month after opting to sack Louis van Gaal just two days after the Dutchman led them to FA Cup glory and their fifth-placed finish in the league.
