Daley Blind not intimidated by pricetag comparisons and uses Sir Bobby Charlton as inspiration

Daley Blind has followed in the footsteps of the likes of Juan Mata and Angel di Maria by paying a visit to Manchester United’s museum.

The Dutchman got to know plenty more about United’s history, players of the past and just how laden with success United have been over the course of history.

Just like when players go on tour for the first time gives them an insight into the sheer size of United’s fanbase, United’s museum is always a timely reminder of what makes the club United.

However, Blind has refused to become intimidated by his new surroundings nor the players he is now playing alongside

He said: “I’m not a player United [paid a fortune for] like Di Maria, but that doesn’t make me a shy boy in the dressing room and on the training pitch. Thanks to Amsterdamse bluf, we Ajax players have a natural self confidence.”

Confidence is everything for a footballer and it’s good to hear Blind has it in abundance and in terms of motivational tools, the presence of Sir Bobby Charlton in United’s dressing room after matches is something which buoys Blind.

“Sir Bobby doesn’t speak much, but he is there, standing as a living legend of his club,” Blind added.

“Keeping those traditions makes a difference at a club.”
