Eric Bailly has revealed he wants to make up for lost time and also insisted the club have made good progress this season.
Bailly made his first appearance of the season in United’s emphatic win over Chelsea last month.
After an ankle injury saw him miss about three months of action, the Ivorian returned in style and has looked solid since.
Bailly impressed greatly against Chelsea and was also a shining light in United’s 5-0 win over Club Brugge in the Europa League last week.
In the Premier League, Manchester United are three points off fourth place Chelsea and the 25-year-old believes United have made progress this season despite what the media have been insinuating.
Speaking with the club’s website in an exclusive interview, Bailly was asked of his assessment of the club’s season so far.
“I think we’re making real progress, I really do. There have been a lot of changes in the last couple of years and recent months.”
“There has been a real influx of top players, young guys coming through the Academy into the first team, and I think if we continue in the same vein, picking up points, then I think we’re making excellent progress.”
Bailly is expected to keep his place in United’s lineup when they play Derby County in the FA Cup on Thursday.
