(Video) Remembering Eric Bailly’s volleyed back-heel flick pass against Bournemouth

This moment of Bailly inspired madness came during the mid-season revival (January 2019) following the sacking of José Mourinho.

Manchester United made it three impressive wins in three games under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The crowd at Old Trafford were hoping for something more exciting to get away from the lacklustre and uninspired style of football they had to endure under not only Mourinho, but Louis van Gaal previously too.

We were treated to adventurous and attacking football over the festive period and the players were given more freedom to express themselves under Solskjaer.

Eric Bailly was given a chance to play against Bournemouth and he certainly made an impression.

His performance was overshadowed by a two-footed tackle that had him sent off, but before that he was full of confidence and showing off his skills at the back against Eddie Howe’s side.

Bailly pulled off a volleyed back-hell flick pass — as seen below:
