Former Manchester United assistant coach Steve McClaren has claimed Eric Bailly’s mistakes are costing Manchester United.

Bailly put the ball into the back of his own net in the seventh minute to give City the lead in their 2-0 victory at Old Trafford.

McClaren who was an assistant to Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United from 1999 to 2001, also blamed Bailly for Bernardo Silva’s goal that doubled Man City’s lead in the 45th minute.

“Bailly on both occasions is the culprit. Mistakes, bad, bad defending,” McClaren said. “Gundogan gets in front of him for the first Walker cross and should’ve scored.

“The second? He has a chance redeem to himself and he doesn’t.

“They are wicked crosses in and very difficult to defend, yes. Those are the mistakes he keeps making and it’s costing goals.”

  1. This is not the first OG in Man U and the blame is being exaggerated because he’s a black. If he had scored, they would praise more the person who gave the assist. Failures are associated to blacks and success to whites. Racism shall never end!

  2. It’s fine Baily made a mistake, what about Maguire? How many mistakes have he made so far, and you call him captain and you don’t blame him,liedorf was also scoring only de gea saved it, you didn’t see that, did Baily played against Liverpool and man u lost 5-0, who to blame for the loss against Leicester,man u will never win any trophy with Ole never ever, and if we continue with him until the end of the season mark my words man u will finish number 8/9,I support man u and love the club.

  3. I don’t agree with Maclaren it is Fernandes for not closing walker before he bring the cross.
