Ajax defender Blind slammed: This is why Mourinho didn't play him at Man Utd

Former PSV Eindhoven striker Kenneth Perez took aim at Ajax defender Daley Blind after their shock defeat against Heracles Almelo.

Former Manchester United defender Blind was caught out for Cyriel Dessers' winner for the 1-0 shock result and Perez raised the name of Jose Mourinho in his criticism.

"It is exactly what Daley Blind cannot do, and probably the reason why he was not allowed to play at Manchester United under José Mourinho," rapped Perez.

"He can do a lot of other things, but in a duel with a physically strong player the chance is greater that he loses the duel than wins."

Fellow analyst Ronald de Boer, however, defended Blind: "He loses a sprint duel with Dessers, but he has so many other qualities. This happens to him. And I have to say that Dessers impeccably struck the ball."
