Da­ley’s got Blind faith in United

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

DA­LEY BLIND has as­sured doubt­ing Manch­ester United fans that Louis Van Gaal is the right man to bring the ti­tle back to Old Traf­ford.

The Dutch mid­fielder — who has also been play­ing at the back for the Reds — prom­ises the faith­ful that they will clinch a Cham­pi­ons League spot for next sea­son.

And he says the club can use that as a spring­board to win the Pre­mier League ti­tle next sea­son — a claim that has been echoed by his manager.

It’s fair to say that the hon­ey­moon is over for Van Gaal and a grow­ing num­ber of United fans won­der if his cau­tious ap­proach is right for the club.

Af­ter look­ing to have turned a cor­ner, the Reds have now lost three league matches on the bounce and have been short of goals.

They sit in fourth but that’s only down to Liver­pool’s slump rather than their own work. that it makes you bet­ter and that it makes you a bet­ter team.

“I think every­body has re­alised that now.”

Blind is call­ing for unity on and off the pitch as United make their fi­nal push for that all-im­por­tant top four place.

Con­sign­ing Liver­pool to the Europa League is his goal.

He added: “It’s very im­por­tant that we have stuck to­gether as a team for the whole sea­son, even when it’s not go­ing so well.

“I am con­fi­dent and the team is also very con­fi­dent. We said a few weeks ago be­fore the run of top games that they are all fi­nals — and that’s still the same.”
