Man Utd outcast Eric Bailly takes to Instagram to beg Ralf Rangnick to drop Harry Maguire and start him instead
MANCHESTER UNITED outcast Eric Bailly has made a desperate plea to Ralf Rangnick to play more games.

The fan wants to see Bailly partner Raphael Varane at the back for United, and the Ivory Coast international responded by saying: "Please 😂🙏"
But Bailly is unlikely to get his chance soon as Rangnick could revert to a back four after his failed experiment at Anfield.

United have confirmed Maguire is available for selection despite a bomb threat being made against his home on Thursday.
The Red Devils captain is adamant he will not be pushed out of the club with a spokesperson for the defender labelling the person who sent the threat a "coward".

“His number one priority will always be the safety of his family but he’s also got the strength of character to deal with this. It looks like the work of some cowardly fan.
“If that proves to be the case, they are an utter disgrace to the name of this proud football club.”
