Former United centre-back and midfielder, Daley Blind, is enjoying the time of his life at Ajax as he’s noting success after success in Holland.
Ajax is hosting a Premier League giant tonight, as Chelsea travel to Holland to face last season’s Champions League semi-finalist, Ajax.
Daley Blind knows a thing or two about playing against Chelsea; the Dutchman played 140 matches for Red Devils.
However, things have changed for worse for United since Blind’s departure from Manchester.
After Mourinho’s crash in the previous season, Solskjaer took over.
While Norwegian had a promising opening swing, the enthusiasm fell off, and now United is in the result and playing crisis.
The team is at 14th in the league table, with just 10 points, as they’re tied with Everton.
United did grind out a draw against Liverpool this weekend, but the signs of improvement were nowhere to be found.
Asked about Manchester United, Blind expressed his concern, and according to FourFourTwo, said:
“Of course I’m not happy to see Man United and how they’re performing at the moment,” Blind said.
“I’m still a fan of United and it’s not nice to see.”
However, the tone was entirely different when Blind spoke about Chelsea.
“Regarding Chelsea, they are doing well, they have a good philosophy under a manager who wants to play out from the back.
“They play different attacking football with a lot of youngsters and that’s nice to see.
“From that perspective, it’s good. But if you’re talking about United then I’m not happy about that, of course”
The Dutchman pinpointed the threat of Abraham, who is scoring at will this season.
“[Abraham] is doing very well at the moment; he’s a big striker [and has] scored a lot of goals.
“But I will take care of myself like I always do and we have to prepare as we always do – not just against the striker but also the whole team”
