Former Manchester United defender, Daley Blind has expressed his unhappiness watching his former club struggle in the Premier League compared to their long-time rivals Chelsea.
Blind who now plies his trade playing for Ajax had spent four seasons at Old Trafford under Luis Van Gaal and Jose Mourinho respectively winning the FA Cup and Europa League.
Manchester United are currently 14th on the table with just two wins in nine Premier League games while Chelsea, on the other hand, are fourth on the table despite the transfer ban.
Blind said that while he was impressed with Frank Lampard’s side, it was ‘not nice to see’ United’s situation.
‘Of course, I’m not happy to see Man Utd and how they’re performing at the moment,’ the Dutch player said.
‘I’m still a fan of United and it’s not nice to see.
‘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.’
Blind would be in action as his team (Ajax) welcome Chelsea to Amsterdam in a Champions League group stage match on Wednesday.Copyright © 2021 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
