Daley Blind had a fantastic debut for Manchester United yesterday in the middle of the park. He completed an incredible 107 passes with a 96% accuracy.
Following the game, Blind says working with Louis van Gaal will only make him better.
“He is very honest to everybody, he knows what he wants and he knows his philosophy,” Blind told the official site. “He can bring that to the players and he can make a team with everybody. That is a good start for us if you want to work for each other. I have really learned a lot from van Gaal and I like working under him. I haven’t worked that long with him. I only worked with him at the World Cup and in the qualification games. He also helped me a lot and I have learned a lot from him. I hope to learn a lot from him in the next season as well. I think he can make me a better player in terms of positioning, where to stand and tactics in games because midfield is an important position to play. I hope I can get better at it every day.”
