Joyeux anniversaire atoh @erico.sery 🎂🎂🎂on est ensemble donc le reste je vais parler ça chap chap dans ton youkouli 😂😂😂merci pour tout 🙏🏾🔥 Dieu te bénisse !

C est parti en direct sur @rtigroupe dans #dimanchedefoot avec mon bro @erico.sery

Maman, je t'aime ! ❤️ Bonne fête à toi et à toutes les mamans du monde. 🙌🏾 // I love you, mom! ❤️ I hope you and all the mothers of the world have a wonderful day. 🙌🏾

We would have liked to have finished the season by winning the FA Cup. Unfortunately, it was not to be. Nevertheless, we’ve wrapped up a season in which there were ups and downs. Now it's time to stop, to learn from this season, to rest, and to enjoy our families and friends so we can come back next season even stronger. We’re eager to set new goals and to see lots of smiles in the stands at Old Trafford next year. Thanks for the support you have given the entire team throughout the season. And especially, thank you very much for the love you have always shown me. Let’s go United! 🔴 And good luck to my teammates who are playing in the World Cup! 💪🏾

You’ll be back stronger bro. Keep it up and Good luck to the lads...

Can’t wait to see you back Eric, I have your name and number on my back. X

Speedy recovery Billy and wish the team to collect all three points

So sad not seeing you starting the game with them... I wish you quick recovery lad....

Soon, brother, this is the season to lift a trophy, the wind is on our side, we need just to believe.....

am sad because you are not with them on the pitch but i wish you quick recovery eric african they your back

Quick recovery but do your best to stay well once you return. Injuries are going to cost you a place in the starting eleven. Your worth is no longer the same but we still believe in you. Come back stronger!

We need to pray for you concerning this your injury you will play one match you will carry injury for two months

Take care of yourself first Eric. Your teammates want you with them so take courage and recover well. Ivory is forever remember that bro🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘🐘

This guy on my opinion is a good player though the problem is that he plays physical game which leads to injuries....use your brain bailley.

Injury prone...ave never seen an african player who always gets injury in evry match he plays like you....

Tu as intérêt à travailler dur surtout que la concurrence t'attend

Will be missed today, just hurry and come back stronger.

Can't wait for you to be back your my favourite defender

I was so happy to see you Buzzing in preseason man.. Cmon.. Get back stronger. Beast 💪

You are a good Player but too much injuries and reduce your hard tackles.... But u r one of the best

Eric can u watch Sergio Ramos champions league matches from 2006-2008, I think u need more composure in the way u tackle... it can help u stay injury free and become the Potentials in you. Top Top Talent!

Get well soon and come back strong, Eric! United need you in their defence.

The picture should be the photo from that match.

Injury prone as usual escaping from duties to get easy earn

Kaka Wew Pona Tu Pale Nyuma Patamu Sana Maguire Anakinukisha Kinomaa Na Twaongoza 1-0

Beast you are my player ,I want you to play in the team but brother you got to be fit for good so that when you are back you can't be ruled out again

If you still recover,,you will still have injury,,I wonder who did this to you,,,,,the last injury made you to miss afcon,,you came back we all think you are good to go for the new season,,immediately it was time to start the new season,,,you got another one,,,,I pray that spirit of injury should leave you so that you enjoy your football career

Mon pro , mon vieux père , mon meilleur dépenseur du monde sience tu vas m'envoyer en amerique et juré promis je vais travailler a jamais pour te rembourser

Bâts toi pour être titulaire cette saison ce coach la apparemment est bcp players anglais. Je vois que lukaku et toi meritiez d être titulaire mais je comprend pas ce coach la qui veut libéré l attaquant belge

Salut Ericko j'ai vu tes matchs de préparation. C est bien On sent la confiance en toi et dans ton jeu. Papah c'est bien boss tjrs moi même quand je te vois jouer comme ça mon coeur est mort parce que je me dis si cet mec était mon concurrent dans l'équipe c'est que j'ai pas ma place. Si je pense ca c'est que ça veut dire que le petit est prêt. C est bien que Dieu soit avec toi.
