Eric Bailly: This is where and how I improved since I joined Manchester United from Villarreal


Manchester United defender Eric Bailly says he improved as a player since joining the club.

The Ivorian enjoyed a very solid first campaign at Old Trafford after joining from Villarreal last summer.

United spent £30million to secure his services and he immediately became a solid regular in Jose Mourinho's squad.

He says his tactical and physical game have both improved under the Portuguese.

"In my time at Manchester United and with the help of the manager, I have improved," Bailly told MUTV.

"One thing I have learned is to improve my tactical play, my physical play has changed too and I hope to continue to improve."

The 23-year-old will miss the Super Cup against Real Madrid on 8 August and the team's first Champions League group match after his European suspension has been extended for two more games.
