Daley Blind hands Manchester United knee injury blow

Manchester United midfielder Daley Blind faces a lengthy period on the sidelines after suffering suspected knee ligament damage in the Netherland`s 6-0 win over Latvia in Sunday`s Euro 2016 qualifier.

Blind was hurt after just 20 minutes following a collision with Eduards Visnakovs.

"It is his medial ligament. It could be a strain or a tear," said Dutch coach Guus Hiddink.

Blind said he was "gutted" with the setback.

"I`m proud of my 25 games for the Dutch national team, but I`m so gutted with my injury... I`ll stay positive and will come back stronger! Nevertheless a great win, 6-0," Blind wrote on his Facebook page.
