Ivorian international Eric Bailly has been rewarded for his super form with the Manchester United Player of the Month Award for August.
The 22-year-old who joined from Villarreal this summer have already picked up two Man-of-the-Match accolades in four appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils.
He picked up a vote of 55% to beat fellow new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic (37 per cent) and his defensive partner Daley Blind (8 per cent).
Only recently, Bailly told MUTV: “The Man-of-the-Match awards are something I hadn’t thought about but I got them through the hard work I have put in. I hope to see more of that in the weeks ahead of us.”
Manchester United play host to Manchester City on Saturday in a much anticipated derby match.
