Man Utd defender Bailly full of pride playing with Ibrahimovic, Pogba

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is full of pride playing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba.

Bailly will have to shake off a knock he picked up against Dutch outfit Feyenoord if he is to play at Watford today.

But he said: “Zlatan and Paul are what you know they are – big players.

“Zlatan is world class, it is a true pleasure to play with him.

“And Paul is the same. They are important for their experience and the contributions they make to the team.

“And the manager has taken me under his wing, almost like a son, as he does with other players in the squad.

“It's a pleasure to be here and to learn from him. I have to take advantage of all his experience.

“Our objective this season is to win the Premier League title but each match is difficult.

“You never know who is going to win the league at this stage of the campaign. You can only go match by match, step by step until things become clearer.

“But I have come to a club where the atmosphere is fantastic – it's amazing. As a player, you want to play in all the great stadiums and playing here inspires me."
