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! 💪🏾

Can I get many likes for this Ivory Coast genius

That partnership is closing to be like that of Vidic and Rio. Bravo minister of defence Sir Eric Bailly!

Congratulations Eric you were outstanding. 🇰🇪🇰🇪

The gov of Ivory Coast has appointed Eric Baily as a minister for Defense because he can not allow even air to penetrate. Just jokes 😜😜

When is Jones leaving? every time I see him on the pitch, I develope a running stomach. He has appetite for own goals.

Next young Valencia darmian Jones snalling Mata lukaku

Strange how fellaini got more goodbye messages from his teammates than Rooney did when he left. Maybe he actually isn’t what the fans see him as and genuinely is a nice guy Tanay Maheshwari

Best wishes fellaini

I miss you... I wish u all the best...good luck for him..

I Miss U I wish u all the Best Good Lucky marwan
