Blind comfortable in heart of Man Utd defence

Manchester United defender Daley Blind has revealed that he is most comfortable playing at centre-back.

Blind is most certainly a versatile player and the 25-year old was largely used as a left-back or a defensive midfielder by United last season.

During the current campaign though, Blind has started in central defence under Louis van Gaal and while many are still unsure as to whether the Dutch international is good enough for the role, the former Ajax star has gone on to reveal that he feels comfortable playing at the heart of the defence.

Speaking to De Telegraaf, Blind said: "Of course now I feel most comfortable in the centre-back position.

"There I play every week at Manchester United and I feel good. (But) I have not so much difficulty to play again at left-back, central defender or midfielder."
