Eric Bailly Begs Manchester United Fans For Forgiveness After ‘Terrible’ Euro Exit

Eric Bailly Begs Manchester United Fans For Forgiveness After ‘Terrible’ Euro Exit

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has issued a grovelling apology to the club’s supporters in the wake of last night’s humiliating exit from the Champions League.

United were hot favourites to progress to the quarter-finals last night, after securing a 0-0 draw away to Sevilla two weeks ago, but a Wissam Ben Yedder double secured the Spaniards a 2-1 win at Old Trafford, and sent Jose Mourinho’s men spiralling out of the competition.

Bailly was at the heart of the Red Devils’ defence which conceded the crucial goals, and it seems the Ivory Coast international is keen to stress just how sorry he is for his small part in the debacle:

Bailly and his colleagues now turn their attention towards the FA Cup quarter-finals this weekend, and a clash with Brighton, but what do you make of Bailly’s apology?

Is he right to issue such a statement, and should fans give him some leeway?

Let us know in the comments section below…
