Jose Mourinho sends message to Man United fans about Eric Bailly
Jose Mourinho heaps praise on Eric Bailly for his fighting attitude at Manchester United this season
Jose Mourinho has heaped praise on Eric Bailly for his fighting attitude at Manchester United this season.
The Ivorian has been a regular fixture in the Manchester United first team since arriving at Old Trafford from Villarreal last summer in Mourinho’s first transfer deal at the club.
Bailly has made 22 Premier League appearances for Mourinho’s men and has held down a regular spot in the first team under the Portuguese coach.
There had been fears about Bailly’s fitness after he limped out of Manchester United’s 1-1 draw with Swansea last weekend.
However, Mourinho was delighted by the attitude shown by the 23-year-old as he battled to make himself available for Manchester United’s trip to Celta Vigo in the Europa League on Thursday night.
Speaking at his news conference before the semi-final clash, Mourinho said: “Bailly is ready to play. He is the kind of personality that fights against every problem it is impossible.”
Manchester United now turn their attentions back to Premier League affairs and their crunch clash with Arsenal at The Emirates on Sunday afternoon.
