Daley Blind reflects on his debut season at Manchester United by showing appreciation for the club’s home and away support.
It’s nothing new to hear United’s away support get the recognition it deserves. Few fan bases in the country rival it, if any.
At home it’s a different story but with the introduction of a Singing Section this season the atmosphere is a work in progress. Blind, for one, enjoys it.
“It was a good season for me. I tried to get involved very quickly at Manchester United. I tried to feel at home as soon as possible and the team very much helped me with that. I think I did well.
“There were a couple of games towards the end of the season where it was difficult, but I always worked hard, especially in the beginning until after winter, so I did quite well. I found my level and only in the last few weeks was it a bit difficult for me. It has been a long season as well.
“You learn a lot over a season. For example, I learned how big the club is and how important the fans are. Home or away, they are always there to support us and that is an important thing.
“Playing at Old Trafford. I enjoy it every time I get to walk down the tunnel and get on the pitch. Especially the top games against Liverpool, Arsenal or Chelsea. I also enjoyed Liverpool away. I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the Premier League.”
