EPL: I hope Man Utd will give Ten Hag time to perform, says Ajax captain Blind

Ajax captain, Daley Blind, is backing Erik ten Hag for success with Manchester United.

Blind – who played for United between 2014 and 2018 before moving back to Ajax to link up with Ten Hag – insists he is ‘confident’ the coach will do well in his new role but urged United chiefs to give him patience.

“Erik ten Hag is a great guy,” Blind told Bij Andy in de Auto.

“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.”

He added: “Ten Hag leaves nothing at chance. Sometimes we faced an opponent that we would automatically underestimate and we thought, ‘we don’t need a 45 minute meeting for this’.

“But he approaches every single game the same, tactical training sessions… everything is detailed.”
