Bailly: It’s really good to be back with the team

Manchester United centre-back Eric Bailly recently returned to training after his international assignment with Ivory Coast at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

“”It’s really good to be back with the team. Before that, I had the Olympics in Tokyo which was a good experience,” the 27-year-old told Manchester United’s official website.

“For me, when you’re a kid, you always want to do something with your country and something like that was a good moment which we enjoyed.

“I scored in the last game but, unfortunately, we lost [it] in the last minute. For me, the most important [thing] is to play with my team-mates and to enjoy. We had a very, very hard game against Brazil and Germany and we did well.

“It was my first experience [at the Olympics] and, for me, it was a really good experience, apart from losing [an equaliser] to Spain in the last minute, but, you know, football is like that.

“Now it’s finished. I’m back with the team which has been enjoyable and we have started well in the league.”
