Daley Blind - My message to United fans

Another unmissable UTD Podcast has been released as Sam Homewood, Helen Evans and David May travelled to Munich for a catch-up with former Red Daley Blind.

The Dutchman was an open and honest guest, talking about a wide range of subjects, including his stint at Old Trafford, which included winning four trophies with the club.

After growing up in football, with his father Danny an Ajax legend, he rose through the ranks at the Amsterdam giants and discusses how tough it was to make his own mark in the game, considering how famous his dad was.

Shining at the 2014 World Cup under Netherlands boss Louis van Gaal would change his life and he talks about the decision to follow the experienced manager to United and adjusting to life in the Premier League. Despite some real high points, he details how difficult he found it when van Gaal left the club, on the back of winning the FA Cup.

There was sadness when he also left the club, to return to Ajax, and he speaks very honestly about a tough time when he was diagnosed with heart muscle inflammation in 2019. Thankfully, he was able to return to action and joined Bayern earlier this year.

Daley talks about the future, as he would like to go into coaching himself when he hangs up his boots, and has a special message for all United fans.

It’s another cracking episode which all fans will enjoy.
