Manchester United utility Daley Blind has had a pop at his doubters.
Blind believes his critics jumped the gun in believing he’d be dumped by Jose Mourinho.
“People were making that mistake very quick. But nothing was said and just like all the other guys I want to work very hard and get my spot in the team,” says Blind.
“I think in football, you never really have assurances. But I believe if you are confident and work hard that you will get chances.
“What I’m saying is not only for me but everyone in the squad. That’s what I do, work hard and I want to be part of the team.
“I think every manager has his own ideas. This is a great manager with his own plans and as a team we are learning a lot.
“The manager is very honest. Not just with me, but with every player he’s honest. We know Manchester United is a big club with a lot of competition.”
