De Boer excited by potential of Daley Blind in Man Utd defence

Dutch legend Ronald de Boer feels Manchester United utility Daley Blind looks a natural at centre-half.

After last season's change of position, Blind has shone for United in defence under manager Jose Mourinho.

And in Holland's defeat to Greece last week, De Boer says Blind was a highlight for the Oranje.

"Although he made a mistake against the Greeks, Daley Blind is superb in defence," said De Boer. "I really enjoy his play at Manchester United.

"He just needs to grow more in the role."
