Manchester United were less than five-minutes into their FA Cup quarter-final tie against Norwich when centre-back Eric Bailly did something only he is capable of and it has loads of fans in stitches across social media.
The elaborate defender found himself shielding the ball deep in his own half on the right hand side of the pitch, as the ball was rolling out of play, Norwich player Emi Buendia contested Bailly for it.
With very little contact, Bailly tried to win a free-kick in an attempt to ease some United pressure and made an absolute hash of it. He was actually successful in his attempts to win a free-kick but upon closer inspection, it wasn’t the most graceful of attempts to play to the referee.
