Manchester United player Eric Bailly has announced that he’s ready to help his team to win trophies.
Bailly supposed to be a free agent in summer
Defender from Manchester United Eric Bailly wants to help his team to win main trophies because he steps up his recovery from surgery. A severe knee injury led to the fact that today Bailly missed the entire campaign 2019-2020. But recently he returned to full training and focused on returning. Indeed, the 25-year-old striker was an unused substitute during his last three outings against Liverpool, Burnley, and Tranmere Rovers and was awarded minutes for U23 in a recent clash with Newcastle. In the summer, Bailly was supposed to be a free agent, but the club decided to use the two-year extension option, as a result of which he would remain at Old Trafford until at least 2022.
On Wednesday night, when the Red Devils take Manchester City to the Etihad Stadium in the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup, Ivory Coast International is in line for its first senior appearance of the season. Manchester United slipped from the pace in the Premier League, but if they can overcome the deficit in the 3-1 first segment against their local rivals, then three competitions will still be on the grabs. Gunnar’s team are in the fifth round of the FA Cup and the 32nd round of the Europa League, while Bailly is eager to return to the field as soon as possible to help his trophy pursuits.
The Club always showed a lot of faith in me
“Through all the difficult times that I had, the club always showed a lot of faith in me,” he said in an interview with MUTV. “And, as part of this demonstration of confidence, they gave me this extension of the contract.” Therefore, I should be grateful for the confidence they showed in me, grateful and ready to give all my strength when I return to the team, show them that I am completely behind the team, and I hope that in the future, I will continue to raise some silverware.
“There are still many matches. We are still in all different cups – FA Cup, League Cup, and Europa League. As well as continue to work in the Premier League. We will continue this in training and remain united as a team until the end of the season.” Bailly understands why he was not risky for a United victory in the 6-0 FA Cup in Tranmere last weekend but claims to “building confidence” every day in training. “I always remained motivated. Equally at my best, as at my worst moments of injury,” he added. “Last year I had some difficult times, but as soon as these times have passed, they are the past, and it’s time to make the most of these opportunities now, introducing myself.
“I am fit and healthy, I returned to training with the team, building confidence in my return. This will be a very important year. “Given these conditions in Tranmere, for a player who returned due to a lengthy injury, there would not be the required field to start his return match on such a surface. “But I was happy to be with the team, to see them win the game, and that’s my focus, to prepare for the day when I’m back playing with them.”
