Johan CruyffAs punters on free bets forums are saying; Daley Blind underwent an embarrassing night in Turkey with the Netherlands side. However, legendary Dutch player Johan Cruyff is backing the player to be a well-deserved player in the Old Trafford stable.

Johan Cruyff is a legend and a well-respected person in Holland. As a former player and football analyst, rumors are rife that he uses his experience and spends time placing free bets online. Cruyff has come to Blind’s defense despite the embarrassing defeat Netherlands International faced against Turkey. Sunday evening saw the once-feared Netherlands’ International team lose 3-nil in Konya.

The loss means that the Dutch are treading on dangerous grounds of not qualifying to take part in Euro 2016. Cruyff states that Daley Blind played well on the left-back when the Netherlands team faced Iceland last week.

However, as it was clear from Sunday’s game, Daley Blind had a bit of a struggle at the center when the team faced the Turks.

What is making punters talk about Daley Blind is the turn of constant critic Johan Cruyff. The legend is known due to his vocal criticism of Manchester United’s manager Louis Van Gaal. However, he is now insisting that Blind has is a better ball player under the management of the Dutch manager.

Johan Cruyff agrees that on a club level, Louis Van Gaal has made the Dutch defender (Daley Blind) a better player. John is quoted on several free bets online forums stating how impressed he was with Daley’s improvement after spending twelve months playing for the Red Devils.

Johan Cruyff’s Observation

Dutch legend Cruyff was quoted stating how Blind’s passing is impressive when it comes to speed and direction.

Following his keen observation, Johan says that the passing prowess that Daley Blind has mastered is good. It is also proof of what the player is likely to achieve and accomplish if he undergoes higher training intensity.

Daley Blind in the ongoing season has featured in all the six matches Manchester United has played. He has played these games besides Chris Smalling occupying the center half position, and the Dutchman played the full-back position last season.

However, Daley Blind was outmuscled by Swansea’s Bafetimbi Gomis when United lost to the underdog Premier League team. The six games have seen Daley Blind create an encouraging rapport with teammate Chris Smalling, which is great for the team.

Daley Blind’s Interview
Daley Blind was quoted in an interview stating how he is doing his best to improve his performance in Manchester. Daley Blind also told MUTV (Manchester United Television) that he has a lot of faith in manager Louis Van Gaal.

The faith in Van Gaal also gives him a lot of confidence and a yearning to shine when playing for the Red Devils. Punters are placing free bets in favor of Daley Blind after he stated that it’s a pleasure for him to play alongside Chris Smalling.

The Dutchman is full of praises for his teammate stating how Smalling is an excellent player, and although their gameplay is different, he admires his teammate’s game and is learning a lot from Chris. He concluded his interview stating how he played the Center-forward position in the Ajax youth team.

Daley Blind is not shy about saying how lucky he is that Ajax Academy granted him the opportunity to play different positions, and they have helped him to be the player he is today!
