Dad says utility midfielder Blind will be Oranje centre-half

Manchester United utility Daley Blind will be played at centre-half by Holland.

The 26 year old speaking in an interview this week said that he has enjoyed playing centre-back and feels he’s been consistent.

Oranje coach Danny Blind, the father of Daley, says it’s natural the midfielder should play at the back after a season there with United.

“If you’ve played about fifty games in a season and it is almost always as a central defender, you can also do the same (with Holland),” said Blind Snr.

“He can also be a left-back and has played as a midfielder in the past.

“But at this moment, he’s a centre-back.”
