Daley Blind has been named Sportsman of the Year at the 2014 Sport Gala awards.
The midfielder enjoyed an excellent year with Ajax and was named the official Dutch Player of the Year so this is another accolade to add to his collection. Blind’s former club Ajax was also named Sports Team of the Year.
For Blind, it completes what was an excellent campaign that ended up being his last with Ajax which earned him a move to Louis van Gaal‘s Manchester United.
Proud that I've won the Sportsman of the Year of Amsterdam! #sportgala020
It didn’t take long for Blind to show how influential a player he could be under Van Gaal and he’d be one of the first names on the team sheet right now had he not injured his cruciate ligament away with Holland on international duty.
Blind is expected to make his return from injury at the start of 2015.
