Recent addition Daley Blind has revealed his intentions to one day become a leader at Manchester United and try to emulate his father, who led Louis van Gaal’s Ajax squad back in 1995, Mirror reports.
The United manager revealed that Blind’s father, Danny Blind was his best ever captain during his Champions League winning run with the Dutch side, hinting that his current midfielder could one day step up to the plate.
“Maybe his son is better (as a player) but he is still not a leader. But that is a process.”
The 24-year-old Dutch international read his managers words and will do his best to get used to his new club environment as well as how to one day lead the Red Devil’s squad.
“I hope I become a bit of a leader like my dad was, but I am still young. I am still improving and this is a new era for me, coming to a new area.
“But I can be that (a leader). I have to learn it and have to keep it up but I am learning every day, including about being a leader.”
