One man who wasn’t at Old Trafford to enjoy Aston Villa’s excellent win over Manchester United on Saturday was winger Leon Bailey.
The Jamaican picked up a quad injury last week after he scored a wonderful goal in Villa’s 3-0 demolition of Everton at Villa Park and is expected to be absent for the next couple of weeks.
Despite his injury keeping him out of the meeting with the Red Devils, it wouldn’t deny Bailey from watching on and cheering his claret and blue teammates on remotely.
Throughout the afternoon, the international kept his Villa followers updated via his Instagram account.
Initially, he wildly celebrated Kortney Hause’s winner, before filming himself in the dying embers of the game as he urged the referee to blow up for full time…then came the reaction as Villa clinched all three points.
“Referee…referee…whistle, whistle…whistle referee…ha! There we go,” Bailey shouted in triumph. “Lovely, lovely, well done Villa! Come on, let’s go, three points in the bag, up the Villa! Yes!”
It was Villa’s first win over United since they won by the same score-line on the same pitch 12 years ago; Gabby Agbonlahor bagged the winner in Manchester back in 2009 on that occasion, during the tenure of Martin O’Neill.
