Father of Man Utd star Blind lands Holland job

Danny Blind, father of Manchester United star Daley Blind, has been named as the new Netherlands head coach.

Blind senior, a former Ajax and Dutch national captain, replaces Guus Hiddink in the role with the KNVB.

His son Daley has 27 caps for the national team, making it likely father will coach son at some point as Netherlands aim for Euro2016 qualification.

Holland currently sit third in Group A qualifying, five points behind leaders Iceland, ahead of their home meeting with the top-placed side in Amsetrdam in September.
