Bailly returned to action in February after suffering a knee injury in preseason.
He told ESPN: “He's someone that will always talk to you.
“He always communicates well. He gives you so much confidence because as a footballer, you go through moments where you feel low and he can read that and when he sees that he immediately comes over to you and talks to you.
“He offers advice so that you can regain confidence and for me, that's so important because we have a very young team and if we have a coach or manager like that then the team will go from strength to strength."
