Eric Bailly is satisfied with his pre-season progress

Eric Bailly has updated Manchester United supporters on social media after another solid run out against AC Milan in the International Champions Cup opener on Thursday morning.

The 24-year-old played the whole 90 minutes as part of a back three alongside Axel Tuanzebe and Chris Smalling, looking strong once again, and also stepped up in the 9-8 penalty shoot-out triumph.

He stepped up, but saw his spot-kick saved by Pepe Reina at the start of sudden death but that didn’t affect Man United supporters’ excitement to see what he can bring throughout the 2018-19 season.

After full-time, he shared a picture of himself in action with his followers on Instagram with a caption making it clear he’s pleased with the progress he and the team are making during their pre-season tour of the United States.

Injuries have strained the Ivory Coast international’s two-year long United career so far after joining from Villareal in 2016, and he was limited to just 13 Premier League appearances last term.

Bailly is still a very inexperienced player but is widely considered as the club’s best centre-back, so plenty of fans will be praying that he’s given more game time throughout the upcoming campaign over Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo.

And a new centre-back… if United get their way in the market.
