Bailly: “The fans will be very important against Mallorca”

The centre-back from Côte d’Ivoire predicts an intense match against the Balearic Islands this Saturday (4:15pm CET)

Eric Bailly dreams of returning to La Cerámica with three points against Mallorca (Saturday, 4:15pm). For the Ivorian centre-back, it won’t be easy to beat the Balearic side, but with hard work, unity and concentration he hopes that the team will get the victory and that the communion with the fans will be perfect.

His return to Villarreal CF

“I’m happy to be here, physically I’m doing well and trying to get into the rhythm of the team.”

The support of the fans

“I’m really looking forward to playing at the Estadio de la Cerámica again. I just hope that my return will be with three points. The support of the fans is always important, this week we are playing at home and we are aware of the importance. We’ve been preparing for the game all week with intensity, we’re working well and we’ll see how we get to this game.”

RCD Mallorca analysis

“We are aware that Mallorca are a good team, that they are coming off the back of a win in their last game and that they will be good. We are aware that it’s going to be a very difficult game.”

Improving bit by bit

“What I always say is that I have to take it step by step, match by match. It’s true that we’ve been on a bad run of form, so we need to react now for this Saturday’s game. I hope we get there well and can get a good result.”

Looikng for a reaction

“The team looks good, it’s a good group. It’s true that we haven’t won a couple of games, but it’s better that it happens now and that we are aware that we have to react. We know that we have to start doing things better and get points.”

Working hard in defence

“I think the defence is the whole team, that’s the group. We have a bad run and we are working to improve that. I hope that this week we can start not conceding goals.”
