Manchester United central defender Eric Bailly admits that his club currently isn’t at the same level it used to be. Since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013, the Red Devils haven’t been serious contenders for the Premier League title and haven’t advanced deep in Europe.

United have only finished in the top four once in the past four years, and that was a fourth place finish in 2014-15. Bailly knows the elite history and tremendous prestige that comes with the United badge and he believes the club is ready to show the world that they are back at that level.
