Daley Blind reveals dismay at watching current Man Utd plight

Former Manchester United defender Daley Blind has said he is saddened by the club’s current form, saying that their recent run of results is “not nice to see”.

United sit 14th in the Premier League table after 10 games and are two points above the relegation zone, representing their worst start to a campaign since 1989.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s side were much better against Liverpool on Sunday in which they restricted the league leaders – who boasted a perfect record in the league going into the clash – to a point.

Speaking to reporters at a press conference ahead of Ajax’s Champions League clash with Chelsea, Blind said it is sad to watch his former side on their current form.

“Of course I’m not happy to see Man Utd and how they’re performing at the moment,” the 29-year-old said. “I’m still a fan of United and it’s not nice to see.”



Blind was also asked about how Ajax will get on against Chelsea, with the Dutchman praising Frank Lampard’s young side.

“Regarding Chelsea, they are doing well,” the defender said. “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.”

United face Partizan Belgrade on Thursday in the Europa League before playing Norwich City at Carrow Road on Sunday.
