Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has responded to the criticism about him. The Ivorian centre-back has not been very convincing at the back in United’s two matches so far. However, Bailly has hit back at former United star Gary Neville and Graeme Souness for their criticism of him.
Bailly said, “I always take criticism well when they are constructive when they are there to help, and I like criticism but in a positive way. But what Graeme Souness said was a little bit disrespectful because it became so personal and it’s not the sort of criticism that can help a young player improve and become a better player.
Regarding Gary Neville’s comments, Bailly felt that they were extremely discouraging. He said, “I think the criticism was a bit harsh, particularly from people who have played the game and have probably made mistakes themselves during their career.
Eric Bailly will hope to give a much better display on Monday when United take on Tottenham Hotspur.
