Manchester United fans were pleased with Eric Bailly’s impressive performance against Southampton on Friday night.
He has won over fans since his arrival from Villarreal this summer and has done extremely well to adapt to life in England quickly.
Bailly has made an instant impact on Jose Mourinho’s side and has successfully cemented his place in the team, despite the fact that he can’t even speak English fluently yet.
Here’s what fans on Twitter had to say.
Bailly looks disappointed when he can take the ball without the man.

Bailly looks like a solid defender and the type of player Man United have missed in recent years, his presence on the pitch is always felt and he puts his head in places some wouldn’t even place their foot.
He has earned two Man of the Match awards and although the likes of Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic will be stealing the headlines, Bailly looks like one of our best signings of the summer.
Bailly looks like a top class defender and it’s hard to believe he is only 22 because he still has plenty of development to do under Mourinho at Old Trafford this campaign.
