Zlatan Ibrahimovic departed Manchester United for LA Galaxy last week and while most of his Red Devils teammates posted a farewell message on social media for the maverick striker, Eric Bailly’s Instagram post was definitely the pick of the bunch due to its crude, yet uproarious language.

 

When Ibrahimovic had announced on his Instagram profile that he would be leaving United for MLS side La Galaxy, Eric Bailly’s ‘F**k off’ comment had delighted many fans as they knew it was all banter between two teammates.

However, Bailly took Ibrahimovic’s case once again with a final post as the 36-year-old bade his goodbyes to the United dressing room, evoking memories of the Ivorian’s famous ‘kung-fu kick’ that had annoyed the Swede not so long ago.

Bailly is a popular figure at Old Trafford, for his no-nonsense approach to defending has seen him emerge as the club’s premier defender despite only being in his second season at the club and the African’s social media posts have amused his teammates and fans in equal measure as well.

The 23-year-old refused to take Ibrahimovic too seriously throughout the Swede’s time at United, a rare occurrence considering the outspoken striker’s glittering career and perhaps unmatched personality.

While Ibra gets ready for the MLS season with his new club, Bailly and Co. are preparing for the final few weeks of their own season.
