New Manchester United defender Eric Bailly took to social networking site Twitter in order to share his immediate thoughts after making his unofficial debut for the club.
Jose Mourinho’s United got their pre-season underway with a 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic, with Will Keane and Andreas Pereira grabbing the goals in a 15-minute spell just after half-time.
Bailly, a big-money summer addition from Villarreal, started at the DW Stadium alongside fellow new signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan and impressed as United dominated the game throughout.
Taking to social networking site Twitter after the game, the athletic and impressive centre-back spoke of the good vibes after making his first appearance in a United shirt.

United weren’t too bad from a defensive perspective under Louis van Gaal, yet the club evidently felt the need to add more strength in defence this summer as they look to challenge for the title this coming season.
A centre-back pairing of Chris Smalling and Eric Bailly has great potential, and their somewhat contrasting attributes could make them one of the most dominating partnerships in the Premier League.
The Red Devils face Leicester City in the Community Shield at Wembley before kicking off their league campaign with a visit to the south coast to take on Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth.
