Blind credits Ajax background for early Man Utd impact

Daley Blind is happy with the way he's settled at Manchester United.

A product of the famous Ajax youth system, the 24-year-old also believes the education he received at the Amsterdam club has prepared him for the pressures of playing for United.

Blind said: "I suppose we have been raised with the Amsterdamse bluf [confidence].

"I'm not a player United bought for €75million like Angel di Maria, but that doesn't make me a shy boy in the dressing room and on the training pitch.

"It's the Amsterdamse bluf that gives me that."
