Daley Blind made his 52nd appearance of the season for Manchester United against Leicester on Sunday. At the Player of the Year awards this evening, Blind talked about how happy he has been to feature so often this season.

For me personally, consistency is something I want to achieve as much as possible. To play in 52 games in a season is a great feeling and I’m happy that I’m still fit, with a couple of games to go.

David de Gea is the favourite to win the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award for a third time, becoming the first player ever to do so, and Blind has revealed he found it difficult to choose who should win it.

It’s difficult to say. It’s of course a team performance, but I can’t tell you my choice. I’ve made my decision.

Ahead of the FA Cup final, Blind has spoken about how special it will be to play at Wembley again.

I’m very excited. As a player, especially at Manchester United, you want to win prizes. The FA Cup is something special. There are still two important games to go, but the final is definitely something special for us.
