Daley Blind: discusses his United role

Daley Blind has explained his role in the Manchester United side as he continues to prove his versatility.

The summer signing scored as a Netherlands midfielder in Wednesday's 3-2 friendly defeat to Mexico, five days after serving the Reds as a centre-back. Injuries and Chris Smalling's suspension led to Blind operating there against Crystal Palace and he produced an accomplished display as United kept a first clean sheet in seven games.

Although the Dutchman established himself as a deep-lying midfielder with his former domestic team Ajax, Blind has often played at left-back for his country and is willing to do the same for his club if Louis van Gaal ever requires it.

In a recent interview with ManUtd.com, Blind said: "I think midfield is a good position for me and it's also where I can help the team the most.

"Maybe my qualities are better for that position but, if the trainer needs me for the left full-back position, then I will play there. It is no problem for me."

When asked to describe his playing style, he added: "I think I am a player who keeps the ball and helps the rest of the team. I'm somebody who tries to play the easy pass instead of the difficult option, but it's also there [in this area of my game] that I have to improve myself. I always try to do my best and do what the coach asks of me."
