Daley Blind spent four years at Old Trafford between 2014 and 2018 before returning to his childhood club Ajax from where he was signed.

The Dutchman made 141 appearances for United and was used in various positions as he won the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League while in Manchester.

The versatile defender is set to face an old rival as Chelsea visit the Johan Cruyff ArenA for a Champions League clash, and Blind has admitted that he isn’t happy with the current state of Manchester United.

“Of course I’m not happy to see Man Utd and how they’re performing at the moment,” said the 29-year-old.

“I’m still a fan of United and it’s not nice to see.”

Concerning this evening’s game against Chelsea, Blind admitted that he is impressed with Chelsea’s progress under Lampard and admits that the Blues are doing way better than his former club.

“Regarding Chelsea, they are doing well,” the Netherlands international continued.

“They have a good philosophy under a manager who wants to play out from the back.

“They play different attacking football with a lot of youngsters and that’s nice to see. From that perspective, it’s good. But if you’re talking about United then I’m not happy about that, of course.”
