Daley Blind: We want to play attacking football

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United defender Daley Blind has defended the brand of football the Reds have been playing so far this season.

Man United have found goals hard to come by, with just two in their opening three league games so far.

However, Blind still feels that United are under ‘unfair’ criticism for playing boring football and that the side are confident the goals will start to come.

“We are playing really compact now and that’s something he (Van Gaal) demands,” Blind said when talking to Sky Sports Soccer Saturday.

“One of his strengths is that we are always strong in defence and that he always knows the opponents well.

United’s defence have been solid so far this campaign with four clean sheets in all competitions. Blind has been central to the Reds impressive performances at the back, having converted into a centre-back this season.

The Dutchman has faith in the club’s attackers to get the goals to help them challenge on all fronts this season.

He added: “I think it is (unfair to say the team is boring), we want to play attacking football and I think everyone can see that.

“We defend very well and we create a lot of chances when we attack, we just need to score more goals but the goals will come.”

After scoring seven goals in two games in Europe against Club Brugge, United will be hoping they can transfer their good attacking form to the Premier League when they visit Swansea today.
