Eric Bailly may be away from Manchester United and on international duty with the Ivory Coast at the African Cup of Nations, but the defender is clearly in high spirits all the same.

The defender earned plenty of praise for his performances for the Red Devils in the first half of the season following his summer transfer to Old Trafford after Jose Mourinho’s appointment at the club.

Bailly was a regular fixture in the Manchester United team and earned praise for his consistent displays in the heart of the Red Devils’ defence.

The defender is now on international duty as he bids to try and help his country win the African Cup of Nations.

And Bailly clearly looked to be in good spirits as he posted the video above of himself busting some moves in his hotel room on Instagram.

Bailly shared the video on the app and wrote the caption: “🐘🐘🐘😜”
