Man Utd defender Bailly: Good connection with Daley

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly says Daley Blind has helped him settle quickly in the Premier League.

Bailly believes Blind's influence has helped him adjust to the demands of English football.

He told manutd.com: "I'll just say that it was easy for me to settle at the beginning. Thanks to my team-mates and the technical staff, it's gone very well.

"I'd like to thank my team-mates for all the help they gave me. I'm standing here today thanks to them, with the Manchester United Player of the Month award.

"Daley has a lot of experience in the Premier League and the combination between us two has worked very quickly.

"I think it's precisely the manager's strategy: there's a good connection between us. It's important for the defence and I hope it will go on like this."
