Man Utd coach Butt full of praise for "strong and comfortable" Blind

Manchester United coach Nicky Butt is full of praise for midfielder Daley Blind.

Butt has been impressed by the way the former Ajax captain has settled.

He told manutd.com: "Daley has come in and helped to shore things up - he's probably one of the only, if you like, natural sitting midfielders that we have. Fletch [Darren Fletcher] always likes to get about the pitch and get forward, while Carras [Michael Carrick] is more of a passer and dictator.

"Daley is very much a protective player, but he can pass the ball as well. He's looked strong and comfortable."
