Eric Bailly Makes Huge Blunder With Apology Post After Man City Win And Man United Fans Are Not Happy

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly has come under criticism from fans for the choice of photos used in his heartfelt apology post on Twitter.

The 27-year-old Ivorian centre-back handed Manchester City the lead at Old Trafford in the seventh minute in United’s 2-0 defeat on Sunday.


Bailly inadvertently directed the ball past United teammate David de Gea while he attempted to clear Joao Cancelo’s cross.

Bernardo Silva put the defending Premier League champions 2-0 up before half-time after poor defending from Luke Shaw and Harry Maguire.

The 27-year-old City star arrived at the back post following Cancelo’s cross and fired the ball directly at De Gea’s chest before it landed in the back of the United net.

Bailly took to Twitter after the 2-0 defeat and admitted that there are “no excuses,” with the United man vowing to “keep my head up.”

The Ivory Coast international wrote to his 1.4m followers: “Nobody is more frustrated than me. I have to keep my head up, no excuses.”

However, Bailly’s Twitter message included photos from the exact moment he put the ball in the back of his net to put City 1-0 up inside the opening 10 minutes.

One Twitter user wrote: “Hello, Eric. We all make bad decisions, chap. However, it's probably not a great shout to post the image of you finishing fantastically well into your own net?”

Someone else posted: “I love you, bro, but delete this.”

While a third tweeted: “Eric, this is pathetic. You’re mocking the fans. You post the picture of you scoring an own goal, anyways, we win together, we lose together, head up! Better than the captain…”

United legend Roy Keane blasted the Red Devils’ performance at half-time and claimed that they have been “giving up chances” this season.

The ex-United skipper pulled no punches after the full-time result, saying he would demand an explanation from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer over Fred’s inclusion in the team.

De Gea, who was praised for his first-half performance against City, was visibly frustrated with United’s performance and was caught punching the Old Trafford tunnel entrance.

United will return to Premier League action after the international break with an away trip to Watford on 20th November.
