Ajax defender Daley Blind has backed Erik ten Hag to bring success back to Manchester United if given time and resources to establish his own playing style.
Blind has described the new United manager as a ‘control freak’ and backed the Dutchman to bring success back to the club if given time and resources to establish his own playing style.
The 32-year-old, who spent four seasons at United before leaving for Ajax in 2018, won three Eredivisie titles and two domestic cups under Ten Hag.
“He’s really social,” the defender told United’s website.
“I think, also in Ajax, he knows everyone at the club is important. Everyone needs to be involved to get that winning feeling, that winning mentality.”
“He is aware of that and wants to keep everything close. He’s also a control freak and wants to be on top of everything. I think that’s a special quality you need to have when being that good.”
