De Gea surprised by Bailly's Man United impact.



David De Gea has revealed his surprise at how quickly Eric Bailly has adapted to life in the Premier League.

Eric Bailly, who sealed a move from La Liga side Villareal to Manchester United, has had an impressive start with the Red Devils and won the Man of the Match award three times in four competitive games during August.

However, De Gea heaped praise on Jose Mourinho's first signing at Old Trafford, saying "Eric's come in and surprised us all very quickly".

"Oof, [Bailly has been] a great signing," De Gea told the Daily Mail. "Eric's come in and surprised us all very quickly. I remember when I first came to England and, trust me, it can be hard early on but he's flying.

"He is physical, strong, technically confident and super-fast. He only speaks a little English but we have lots of Spaniards in the dressing room and Paul Pogba speaks French of course.


"He's a big presence and when I stand in the tunnel and look behind me, he is one of the new big, powerful players along with Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic that gives us real presence and stature this season."

Bailly made just 40 combined LaLiga appearances for Espanyol and Villarreal before his move to United.

Manchester United host Premier League rivals Manchester City at Old Trafford on Saturday and the homeside will be looking to make it four wins on the bounce.
