Daley Blind hearts Louis van Gaal. And Louis van Gaal hearts Daley Blind. Luckily for the both of them, they now work together, after Manchester United appointed one of them as manager, then let him buy the other. And look! They've been saying pleasant things about one another on Manchester United's website!
Here's Blind on Van Gaal:
It is a real honour to sign for Manchester United. Louis van Gaal is a tremendously talented coach, I have worked with him at Ajax and also for the Netherlands national team and I cannot wait to work with him at the biggest club in the world.
And here's Van Gaal on Blind
I am delighted Daley has signed for the club. He is a very intelligent and versatile footballer that can play in many positions. Daley is a great reader of the game, he has played under my philosophy over a number of years and he will be a great addition to the team.
