Video: Eric Bailly’s Slide Tackle Was Best Bit About Manchester United’s Hull Celebrations

Eric Bailly’s slide tackle was the best bit about Manchester United‘s late celebrations against Hull at the weekend.

The Ivory Coast defender is already a fans’ favourite at Old Trafford despite playing just four competitive games for the club since his £30million transfer from Villarreal in the summer.

So the way he got involved in the late celebrations for United as they sealed a 1-0 win over Hull on Saturday should really entertain supporters.

Sliding into action

As hundreds of the United faithful rush to congratulate match-winner Marcus Rashford and his team-mates at the front of the away end, Bailly appears out of nowhere to slide tackle thin air:

We’d love to know what was going through his head there.

The celebrations are already pretty memorable because the winning goal came in injury time and courtesy of popular youngster Rashford.

He changed the game after being thrown on in the 71st minute by Jose Mourinho and his goal was reward for a very impressive performance.

But that Bailly celebration makes it all so much better – a future United legend for sure!
