Daley Blind feels that working with legendary
former Manchester United and Real Madrid
striker Ruud van Nistelrooy at international level
will improve his finishing.
Van Nistelrooy works as an assistant coach with the
Dutch national team and Blind has the opportunity to
learn from the former striker.
Blind is full of respect for Van Nistelrooy's
achievements in the game and believes that he
cannot help but learn from the 39-year-old.
The defender-cum-midfielder said via his club's
official site: "I first met Ruud when he became the
assistant manager for the Dutch team and he's a
really great person. Before that I only knew him from
watching him in the past at the big clubs he played at,
including, of course, United.
"I have some great images in my mind of him as a
player and then I got to know him as a person. He's a
great personality and I think I can learn a lot from

Van Nistelrooy managed a total of 70 caps for the
Netherlands between 1998 and 2011 and scored 35
goals in the process.
Now a coaching assistant with the Netherlands, he is
taking his first steps in the dugout ahead of a
potential role as a manager in future.
The Netherlands have not qualified for Euro 2016,
meaning their full focus is now on the 2018 World
