Daley Blind: I wasn’t satisfied with the second half of the season at Manchester United

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United star Daley Blind has admitted he wasn’t happy with his match time in the second half of the season under Jose Mourinho.

The Dutchman has hardly got any game time all season long in truth but it certainly has been even more difficult to get into the starting XI after the turn of the year.

The left-back position was a bit of an open spot in the United team in the early stages of the campaign but Ashley Young sought to make it his own position and did so successfully.

While the Englishman’s form and performances saw him get called up for the World Cup squad, it also meant that Blind simply never got a look in.

Whenever there was an opportunity to impress it was given to Luke Shaw instead who didn’t necessarily do well enough to steal the limelight away from Young.

According to ESPN, Daley said to De Telegraaf: “We’re going to think about it in the holidays. United is a nice big club. Of course there is a lot of competition there.

“I am still under contract for another year. I certainly will not make a panic transfer because it is not guaranteed that I will play at a new club.

“We have to wait, but it seems logical that I wasn’t satisfied with the second half of the season. So first I’ll go on vacation and then put all the possibilities next to each other.”

Daley Blind was already reported to be on Jose Mourinho’s transfer list though the manager denies wanting to get rid of any of his stars.

The Portuguese boss insisted that should any of the current crop of players leave it will be through their own desires rather than his own.
