They lost Southampton in their latest match…
Manchester United star Daley Blind has claimed that the current team at the Red Devils is great, reports Goal.com.
The Mancunian side lost their last match 1-0 against Southampton on Sunday, and weren’t even able to register a single shot on target against the Saints. This is after manager Louis van Gaal spent over £150 million on new players in the summer. The defeat has led to some accusations that the Dutchman hasn’t improved the team at Old Trafford.
However, despite this summer signing Blind believes that they are currently a great side. He believes the competition for places has helped the players to improve. They are currently fourth in the Premier League and are on the same amount of points as David Moyes’ much maligned side were after the same amount of fixtures in the last campaign.
“The prices in the team are expensive and the manager has said that as well so you have to train every day, very hard, to show yourself and show that you really want to play,” he told reporters.
“We are one team, we have to do it with each other, whichever XI the coach chooses. We are supporting each other and it feels like a really great team.”
The 24-year-old returned from injury in the loss on the weekend, and went straight back in to the starting line up. He claims that this was because he is a fit player.
“I’m a fit player,” he continued. “Maybe that’s why I was brought back straight away! I’m conditioned most of the time, always OK, so it should not be a problem to play 90 minutes. I showed them in training that I had worked hard and that I’d be fit for the game.”
