Manchester United’s Dutch midfielder Daley Blind has said that he is enjoying life playing for the 13-time Premier League champions, as the club adapt to Louis van Gaal’s style of play.
The £14million man signed from Eredivisie side Ajax in the summer has made a series of solid displays for the Red Devils since his arrival in Manchester.
Blind told The Sun: “Yes, it was a busy summer for me, with a lot of things happening that I will never forget.
“But I have managed to stay focused on my football. Playing games for United is a fantastic feeling, I really enjoy it.
“It’s also great being on the training ground with players of this level. Of course I sense the level is higher up, but it’s up to me to adapt and I think it’s a step I can take.”
The Dutch international, who was a major part of United boss Louis van Gaal’s World Cup squad in Brazil, says that he can see that the Red Devils are progressing, despite what could be the club’s worst start to the season in 18 years, should they fail to beat West Brom on Monday night.
“We had a tough start but the last few games were good. The loss away at Leicester was a blow but for the rest, I can see a positive line of progression,” he added.
United are 1.71 to get three points against West Brom, and 2.61 to win against top of the table Chelsea next weekend.
