Eric Bailly: Man United Favouring Only English Players

Eric Bailly has revealed that Manchester United has a bias towards English players at Old Trafford.

The Ivorian featured in 113 games across all competitions for the Red Devils, scoring once and bagged two assists.

70 of those games came in the Premier League games across his six seasons, starting 57 of them.

The 28 year old whose contract with Man United expires next June left Old Trafford on loan to join Marseille this summer in a deal which includes an obligation to buy under certain conditions.

However, when he was fit, Bailly claims he was not given a fair chance to start games at United ahead of the club’s English players, in an apparent dig at club captain

Harry Maguire.

“The club should avoid favouring English players and give everyone a chance,” he said. “Encourage competition in the dressing room, not just look out for some. I’ve

always had the feeling that the national player was prioritised.

“That doesn’t happen at Chelsea or other big Premier League clubs. Some people take it for granted that they are going to start, and that weakens the team. Luckily

[Erik] ten Hag has a lot of character and I hope he can change that dynamic.”
