Former Manchester United defender Daley Blind has backed Erik ten Hag to succeed at Manchester United.
The Dutchman has already begun work at Old Trafford after refusing to rest after leading Ajax to the Eredivisie title and according to Blind who has been one of his key players, the tactician is one of the best in the game and will take the challenge head-on.
“Erik ten Hag is a great guy. It’s not an easy job, of course, but he doesn’t run away from it either. He takes up the challenge.
“I am quite confident in him at Manchester United but he needs the board behind him. At Ajax, he had [Edwin] Van der Sar and [Marc] Overmars behind him whatever happened, also in bad times. I hope he gets the time there, he is one of the best managers around,” Blind told Bij Andy in de Auto, via the Metro.
Blind was part of United’s most successful period since the departure of Ferguson and won the Europa League with United, as well as the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.
