Daley Blind believes Manchester United are heading in the right direction

Manchester United midfielder Daley Blind feels that the team is currently heading in the right direction and are steadily beginning to play the way their manager Louis van Gaal wants them to play on the field with each passing game. United avenged their 5-3 defeat to Leicester City earlier in the season on Saturday, when they beat them 3-1 at home, courtesy goals from Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao and an own goal from Wes Morgan.

"We come closer every week to the way Louis van Gaal wants us to play. We are on the right track and we are happy,” Blind told MUTV.

The 24-year-old Dutchman added that the Red Devils are in a good position at the moment, having lost just a single game in their last 10 matches and said that the team should look to convert the draws into wins in the upcoming matches.

“Overall, we are doing not bad, just one defeat [since early November].Maybe we need to turn those draws into wins. But I think we can look up,” the former Ajax player said.

Willing to play wherever the manager wants me to play: Blind

With Michael Carrick ruled out for four weeks, Blind was slated back into his usual midfield position on Saturday. He later said that he has no issues playing at the back and is willing to give his 100% wherever he is asked to play.

"Everybody knows I prefer the midfield more than the back position, but for me it's no problem to switch position. If the coach needs me in another position in defence or left-back then I play there. I try to do my best," he said.
