However, van Gaal’s sacking and Jose Mourinho’s appointment has thrown Blind’s future into doubt, with some reports on Tuesday claiming he could be sold this summer. Speaking to NOS, Blind is unsure what his future holds under Mourinho, but is determined to prove himself to the Portuguese coach.

Blind said, “I am looking forward to working with Mourinho. We will have to wait and see whether anything changes for me,”

“I might not be as big as Pepe, but I think I have shown in the Premier League that I can hold my own defensively. We conceded the fewest goals in the Premier League and I think we got the most clean sheets. That’s something to be proud of. I played nearly every game and that is a good feeling.

“You might be looking for a certain statement [about my future], but I will just give my all under Mourinho.”
