Daley Blind: Man United must clear minds ahead of Wolfsburg clash
Daley Blind says Manchester United must improve their finishing ahead of Wolfsburg clash
Daley Blind says Manchester United must clear their minds ahead their vital Champions League clash at Wolfsburg on Wednesday night.
The Red Devils faced a fresh wave of criticism on Saturday evening after a dour goalless draw with West Ham United at Old Trafford.
We have to recover and get our minds clear and go on to the next game
The 20-time English champions have scored five times in their last seven games in all competitions, and United could only register one shot on target against the Hammers.
Netherlands international Blind, who moved to United in a £16m deal from Eredivisie side Ajax in 2014, believes the Red Devils are lacking a “little bit of luck” in front of goal.
“If you see this game you can count a lot of chances for us in the second half and I think we deserved the three points,” Blind told United’s website.
“I can say something about the spirit – everybody works really hard and everybody is working for each other. We don’t give away chances, we are well organised defensively.
“We need a little bit of luck maybe with the chances. We have to recover and get our minds clear and go on to the next game. It’s a very important one.”
United are in fourth place and three points behind Premier League leaders Leicester City following Saturday evening’s goalless stalemate at Old Trafford.
The Red Devils need to better Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven’s result in the Champions League at Wolfsburg on Wednesday night in Germany.
