15 times Man Utd’s Eric Bailly was the funniest player in the world
While Eric Bailly has been plagued by injury problems at Manchester United, he’s still been able to provide plenty of entertainment.
Despite making just 56 Premier League appearances across four years, Bailly* has become something of a cult hero at Old Trafford by delighting fans with his eccentric personality.
We’ve collected 15 of his funniest moments on and off the pitch since joining United in 2016.
It’s fair to say Bailly enjoyed United’s late winner against Hull in 2016.

An unorthodox yet effective piece of defending against Tottenham.
We don’t really know why he did this. But we’re glad he did.
