Bailly has made 11 Premier League appearances for United since joining the Red Devils.
Former Villarreal defender hopes to get better under Mourinho.
Manchester United defender Eric Bailly is hoping he enjoys a long stay at Old Trafford and has hailed manager Jose Mourinho as the best coach in the world. The 22-year-old defender, who sealed a move from La Liga side Villarreal to Old Trafford during the summer for a fee reportedly worth £30m, is delighted to be working under Mourinho. "He's a great manager, the best in the world, it is a pleasure to work and learn with him," Bailly said. "I hope it continues like this and that I stay at United for a long time.
"I'm truly happy, with my team and my team-mates. Bit by bit, I'm getting to know more." The Ivorian also compared the Premier League to LaLiga, noting major differences. "From what I see, football in Spain, they also have a great league," Bailly said. "LaLiga is the best in the world, but here it is different, very direct, there is more contact and more strength. "And like I said, little by little, and with more training under this manager, I hope to improve. Manchester is a nice place, I'm happy here."
