Man Utd defender Blind: A manager like LVG deserved more respect

Daley Blind believes Louis van Gaal was disrespected by Manchester United.

The Dutchman was dismissed from his role as Red Devils manager on Monday after two years in the job and it certainly touched a soft spot with his compatriot Blind.

The defender said: "A manager who has achieved so much already deserved more respect.

"Even though there was so much being written about him losing his job, he always looked to protect and shelter us.

"We as a squad kept believing in the manager and showed that with our FA Cup win.

"We did it together for the supporters, the manager and for ourselves. It was a good finish to the season."
