Daley Blind has maintained that he always believed Manchester United would win their fixture against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night.
However, Blind, who partnered Chris Smalling in defence, has insisted that he never doubted United going into the game.
“We created a lot of chances and I believed in us until the end. For me, there was no doubt that we were going to win this game,” Blind said.
Asked about United’s next Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven later this month, Blind added: “I’m looking forward to the next game and we have to get the win again.”
Blind’s comments about his belief in the team suggest that United are an extremely tight-knit group, which is especially important at the moment considering the team’s lack of goals and disappointing exit in the League Cup against Middlesborough.
Such a strong sense of belief running through the squad will stand United in good stead for the remainder of the season. The Dutchman’s confidence in his teammate’s abilities shows that when United are on form, they have a squad to be reckoned with, and that come the end of the year, van Gaal’s side will be there or thereabouts in the league.
