Daley Blind made a fantastic start to his Manchester United career after joining from Ajax Amsterdam in the summer. Cool,calm and composed, the Dutchman quickly became a fan favourite as dictated play and broke down opposition attacks in a Carrick-esque form.
Blind suffered an unfortunate knee injury on international duty and initial reports(and a mistake from the Manchester United twitter account ) claimed that he could be out for as much as 6 months but fortunately,the consequences of his injury were far less severe.
Blind today confirmed on social media that he is back to training stating,via twitter,”The Football boots are back!Started training outside again,great feeling!”
The midfielder is unlikely to feature again this year but could be in line for a return either at Yeovil Town in the FA Cup or against Southampton in the Premier League. With Luke Shaw,Chris Smalling,Marcos Rojo,Maroune Fellaini and Ander Herrera due to be back by the end of the year,Blind’s recovery could see Van Gaal have a fully fit squad soon enough at just the right time
