Man Utd defender Bailly on crazy social media activity: I've been hacked!

Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is adamant his Instagram account was hacked amid surprising social media activity from the Ivorian.

Screenshots appeared on social media of Bailly's account 'ericbailly24' apparently liking derogatory comments about Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba.

It prompted speculation about a potential rift between Bailly and the two United stars and fuelled rumours that the defender could leave Old Trafford this summer.

But Bailly has since explained: "I just want to confirm that my account has been hacked and the Instagram likes some of the media are stating I made were not made by me.

"My brothers @PaulPogba and @MarcusRashford know how highly I think of them."
