Eric Bailly is getting better at English

Eric Bailly is getting better at English slowly and steadily as he says himself.


As per Bailly, he is not uncomfortable even now as some of his Man U colleagues know the French language which he knows as well. So, with the help of those guys, he is able to stay connected with everyone so far.

But, he knows he can’t do without English if he has to be in the Premiership for a long time. So, he has joined a coaching institute as his coach had suggested to him and the lessons in the institute are benefitting him already.

Bailly was quoted as saying, “I can communicate with a couple of boys in French and they are getting me to gel in the squad. I am working on my English as well and in some time hopefully, my English will be good enough for communication.”

“United is like a dream for everyone in Football, for me too. I have felt thoroughly welcomed, so much warmth here.”
“I will grab this opportunity. This is a great opportunity.”

Roy Keane talks about what Manchester United needs to succeed

Roy Keane used to perform with Manchester United starting from 1993 until 2005, during this period of time; the Irishman was able to win a multitude of competitions including the Premier League and the Champions League as well as a few other pieces of silverware.


According to Keane, the current squad of Manchester United is nowhere close of winning the Premier League title as the Irishman has recently talked about the current situation of his former club and what he thinks that they need to do in order to start winning competitions on a consistent basis.

“If they are going to recruit again then whatever about good players, what United need is two or three characters so on their bad days they’re able to grind out results. Chelsea will be stronger next year, Arsenal, and Man City too with their new manager. It’s not going to get any easier. I don’t think they have enough characters in that team to get them back into winning league titles.” Roy Keane said as he voiced his thoughts about what Manchester United needs in order to become one of the elite clubs of Europe.
