Eric Bailly has stated a bullish desire to
“come back stronger” next season, while thanking the Manchester United supporters for the unconditional support throughout the 2017/18 campaign.
The Ivorian defender posted a lengthy message on his Instagram account to show his gratitude and express his determination to improve next term.
“We would have liked to have finished the season by winning the FA Cup,” wrote Eric.
“Unfortunately, it was not to be. Nevertheless, we’ve wrapped up a season in which there were ups and downs.
“Now it’s time to stop, to learn from this season, to rest and to enjoy our families and friends, so we can come back next season even stronger. We’re eager to set new goals and to see lots of smiles in the stands at Old Trafford next year.
”Thanks for the support you have given the entire team throughout the season and, especially, thank you very much for the love you have always shown me. Let’s go United! And good luck to my team-mates who are playing in the World Cup!”

After having lifted three trophies at Wembley to date, today we got the bad feeling of a loss. However, I am proud of my team and my club. I feel really disappointed for our fans. They were amazing again and all we can say is thanks for everything you do for us 🔴 pic.twitter.com/QxKxrzzujP— Ander Herrera (@AnderHerrera) May 19, 2018
