Manchester United defender Daley Blind believes manager Louis Van Gaal will come good at Old Trafford if he is given time to implement his ideas.

With the Red Devils already 12 points off the frontrunners Chelsea in the Premier League title race, there have been some questions raised over former Netherlands boss Van Gaal’s tactics in the English game.

The manager himself has admitted he is trying to find a balance in the side that will allow him to play his preferred 3-5-2 formation but supporters have been calling for their side to go back to their familiar 4-4-2.

Blind, who worked under Van Gaal at the World Cup last summer with Holland, is adamant the tactician is the right man for the job and in time fans will see what the former Bayern Munich boss is trying to achieve at Old Trafford.

He was quoted by Sky Sports, saying: “(Van Gaal) makes players better and he makes teams better. I like that in a coach. That is his most important asset.

“It was the same when I was with him with Holland. He wanted to make the team better. As the team gets better, individuals started standing out as well.”

United are next in Premier League action on January 31 when they host struggling Leicester City at Old Trafford.

The Foxes secured a remarkable 5-3 victory when these two teams last met in the league at the King Power Stadium and Leicester are 9.22 to do the double over United this term, while the Red Devils are 1.30 to claim all three points.
