Speaking to the Manchester United website, Daley Blind gushed about his fellow Dutchman and stated he was keen to help him improve his game.

Blind said, “Tim is a big talent and also from Holland so I talk a lot to him.

“We were at the same youth academy at Ajax and that will help him even more. I’m very happy that he’s doing so well.

“He gives everything in every game and there is a lot to come from him. He needs to keep going now and stay strong and we will help. I’m really pleased for him.

“There was a point where we had a lot of injuries and the youngsters had to come in. As youngsters, you always give everything and doing your utmost best maybe that gave us something extra in some games.

“If you look at them now they are doing a great job for the team and they are great guys. It’s great to see them doing well and helping us.”
