- Daley Blind has made a return to action after overcoming heart issues
- The former Manchester United star was diagnosed with heart problem in December 2019
- Blind was operated before returning for Ajax on Wednesday night, February 12
Former Manchester United star Daley Blind on Wednesday night, February 12, made an emotional return to football two months after heart surgery as he played for Dutch side Ajax.
The encounter was in the Dutch Cup win over Vitesse where the 29-year-old came off the bench to feature in the tie which was to the delight of the fans.
Back in December last year while playing in the Champions League clash against Valencia, Daley Blind suffered dizziness before being later diagnosed with serious heart issue.
And after the abnormal heart rhythm was regulated in a surgery, Daley Blind returned to training last week after passing many fitness tests.
He has now expressed happiness for his quick return to action claiming that he was initially under tension considering the fact that he never knew what will come out in the result.
"I am really happy to be back on the pitch. I had a little bit of tension beforehand because you don't know how it will go.
"The doctor really needed to hold me back and step on the brakes because I wanted to get back ASAP. I wasn't scared at all, I wanted to get back on the pitch as fast as possible,'' he told Fox Sports Netherlands.
Daley Blind actually began his football career at Ajax before moving to Premier League side Manchester United in 2014 and played his first game against QPR.
Blind won the FA Cup with Manchester United in 2015 and was also among the squad that won the Europa League title in 2016/17 season before he left Old Trafford.
And since he left Premier League side Manchester United, the club have not won any title as they also sacked former manager Jose Mourinho.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer started well when he was hired Manchester United manager beating Paris-Saint-Germain in the Champions League last season.
But the Norwegian has been under serious pressure this season at Old Trafford as the club are currently fighting to make the top four.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Manchester United new striker Odion Ighalo was reportedly banned from entering the Red Devils training ground over fears of coronavirus disease.
Virtually all the nations in the world are currently taking precautions against the deadly disease which emanated from China.
Odion Ighalo played in the Chinese League before Manchester United went for his signature and was signed for six-month deal as replacement for injured striker Marcus Rashford.
And since he got to Old Trafford, the former Watford striker has been training hard as he gears up for his first game for Manchester United in the Premier League or Europa.
Man United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could give Odion Ighalo his debut for the team against Chelsea in their next game.
Manchester United are currently in Marbella on a training camp for the winter break without Odion Ighalo who was asked to stay back in England.
