VIDEO: Eric Bailly Films Juan Mata Performing Weird Dressing Room Dance Routine

Jamie Spencer

Manchester United's ​Juan Mata is yet to play his first game since recovering from groin surgery, but the Spaniard appears to be in fine spirits if a rather odd dressing room dance routine caught on camera by Eric Bailly is anything to go by.

Speaking a common language, the pair have become good friends since Bailly arrived at Old Trafford from Villarreal last summer and the Ivorian had little qualms about videoing his pal's moves, complete with a football, and uploading the end result to Instagram.

​​The fact that Bailly appears to have since deleted the footage perhaps indicates the level of manager Jose Mourinho's rumoured crackdown on social media usage within the squad.

​​It has been reported​ that United players have been asked to no longer post pictures from training or recovery sessions online, or use social media in the 48 hours leading up to a game.

And with United due to face Celta Vigo in the Europa on Thursday night, Bailly's Wednesday afternoon video, however harmless, does breach the new regulations.
