Daley Blind has become a fairly popular player amongst the United support, thanks to his no nonsense approach to the game. Speaking with Inside United, he has thanked the fans and claimed he wants to repay the faith they have shown in him.

Things feel great. I definitely feel their trust and their faith in me and I hope I can pay them back in every game. I want to work hard and show them what I’m capable of. I’m definitely feeling good here and I want to thank the fans for that. It’s great to see there are so many United fans at every away game – it’s difficult to describe their support. Every game they are there, whether it’s home or away. I think I speak for the squad when I say we have to thank them for their support in every match.

Blind has claimed that Robin van Persie was particularly helpful in helping him integrate with the squad, but that all of them have made him feel welcome.

When I came Robin van Persie helped me a lot in the beginning but my English was okay so I could understand everyone, although sometimes it’s difficult with the accent of some players! Everyone has been great with me and gave me a warm welcome, I felt good from the beginning.
