Manchester United duo Ashley Young and Juan Mata have posted similar posts on Instagram, in which they appear to be mocking their fellow teammate Eric Bailly’s fashion sense.
Eric Bailly joined Manchester United from Villarreal this summer, becoming Jose Mourinho’s first signing for the Old Trafford club. The center-back signed for the Red Devils for a fee of £30 million, on a four-year contract, with an option to extend for a further two years.
The Ivory Coast international has made an instant impact at his new club, and is being dubbed by the United faithful as the club’s best signing of the summer – ahead of star players Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and world’s most expensive footballer, Paul Pogba.
The defender has not only won a few consecutive Man of the Match awards for his top drawer performances for the Reds so far, but was also named the club’s Player of the Month for August.
Bailly has definitely impressed everyone with his footballing sense on the pitch, but his fashion sense off the pitch is anything but impressive, according to the recent pictures uploaded by Ashley Young and Juan Mata on Instagram.
The aforementioned duo posted pictures of Eric Bailly’s hideous white sandals on their social media accounts, making fun of the the 22-year-old defender’s choice when it comes to fashion.
Here’s what they posted on their official Insta handles:
Bailly hardly makes any mistakes on the pitch whilst playing for United, but he definitely made a big one here, by wearing that ugly pair of footwear in training.
