Daley Blind was embracing the baseball spirit on Friday night as the Manchester United midfielder joined his girlfriend for a Miami Marlins game.

The 25-year-old midfielder is one of the biggest names in the Premier League after an impressive first season at Old Trafford following his £16m move to United from Ajax last summer.

The Netherlands international, who was voted Dutch football of the year in 2014, is currently enjoying a well-earned break state-side after a long and demanding campaign for club and country.

And United midfielder Blind treated his long-term girlfriend Candy Rae Fleur to a trip to Marlin Park for the game between Miami Marlins and LA Dodgers on Friday night.

Blind posted the above snap and wrote on Instagram: “Go Miami Marlins! #MiamiMarlins”

Blind was a key part of Van Gaal’s United side following his summer transfer to Old Trafford from Ajax last year.

The Netherlands international scored two goals and made two assists in 25 Premier League games for the Red Devils during his debut campaign in England.
