Eric Bailly, the Ivorian central defender for the Red Devils, gave the fans yet another display of his absolutely brilliant, and rather unorthodox, manner of clearing balls that fly into the box.
During Man United’s season-opener against Leicester City, Bailly channeled his inner Bruce Lee to clear away a cross by a Leicester forward and denied the visitors a shot on goal.
Old Trafford saw the two teams fight it out in the first game of the 2018/19 season of the Premier League last Friday. The Red Devils faced some stiff competition but ultimately emerged victorious.
Bailly’s remarkable clearance in the match didn’t go unnoticed and videos of this incredible maneuver made its way to Twitter.
