The Eric Bailly slide
In the aftermath of Manchester United’s late winner at Hull on Saturday night, scored by Marcus Rashford from a Wayne Rooney assist, Eric Bailly’s celebration went viral.
The Ivorian defender has established himself as a key defender for Jose Mourinho’s side this season and this sliding celebration in the wet at the KCOM Stadium was lapped up by fans of Manchester United.
On Wednesday, during Transfer Deadline Day, Manchester United posted an official video of the Bailly celebration. See below.
Was Bailly trying to slide tackle a fan?
There have been some suggestions that Bailly was trying to comically slide tackle a Manchester United fan who was celebrating with the players.
Even after the slide, Bailly then jumps on top of his Manchester United team mates in real scenes for Jose Mourinho’s side.
Bailly was voted man of the match following Manchester United’s win over Hull on Saturday.
