(Video) Ajax welcome former Man Utd defender Daley Blind back after heart condition

It’s fantastic to see Daley Blind ready to return to action for Ajax this weekend.

Blind is available to play his first game in over a month on Sunday as Ajax face FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie.

The Dutch international was diagnosed with a heart condition in December which mean’t he had to been fitted with a subcutaneous implantable cardioverter defibrillator.

It’s always worrying when a player has heart issues and it’s a relief that we could see the former United man back on the pitch this weekend.

“Daley Blind is also back. It is under construction and must now play matches again,” said Ajax boss Eric Ten Haag, as quoted by Manchester Evening News.

“His failure was a shock, with me and the selection. We were worried and it came hard. He only had to make it, because his health was paramount.”


Blind was an underrated player during his four year spell at Manchester United after he was signed by Louis Van Gaal in 2014. The 29-year-old was the ultimate versatile footballer, operating at centre-back, left-back and central midfield during his time at Old Trafford.
We wish Blind well on his return.
