Man Utd defender Bailly: My two heroes growing up

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly says his heroes growing up were from Ivory Coast.

Bailly is back with his national team this week during the international break.

He told manutd.com: "When I watched Ivory Coast, I watched Didier Drogba a lot, he is a legend, a big player.

"We have Yaya Toure, they give a great example and they are also very good players.

"For me, Yaya Toure and Didier Drogba are two of the best players ever in this league."
