Ole explains Ivorian decision

Amad spoke to us recently about how Bailly helps look after him on international duty, as the defender has been a big influence on his fellow countryman.

“Eric has been like an older brother to me since I arrived in Manchester, but not just Eric, Paul [Pogba] as well,” the 19-year-old said. “In fact, everyone, but I am closer to Eric and Paul because they speak French and help me with what I need to do both on and off the pitch.

“And I go with Eric to the national team games, although I did not know him before I came here. But since I have met him, he is a really calm person, he always gives me advice. I think that someone like him is really important for my development as a player.”
