- Young Daley Blind, son of former Ajax-legend Danny Blind. Daley debuted for the first team last year against FC Volendam, where he came on to replace Eyong Enoh. He did surprisingly well, nearly scoring a goal and was pretty close to giving some assists.
A player much alike his father, Daley plays the offensive centreback role of the classic Ajax-system in the Reserve-squad. When being played into the senior side, he's been used as a defensive midfielder though; a position he's grown used to throughout his years in the academy.
Blind is a good defender, with the ability to read play very well for someone his age. This often helps him out in tight defensive situations, where he often is able to nip the ball away before it reaches the planned destination. Daley's main assets are his passing and dribbling. For a defensive-minded midfielder, he's also a very good distributor and he has excellent control over the ball. In the academy, he's even been used as a more offensively placed central midfielder thanks to his great technical abilities. He's also got a very decent freekick.
In the second half of the 2009-2010 season, the young prodigy has emerged as one of the countries' biggest defensive talents as he displayed his ability to cover the entire defensive line during his loan-period at FC Groningen.
Fun fact: Daley Blind is the first son of a former Ajax-player to have actually made minutes in the Ajax first squad, others like Jordi Cruyff, Youri Mulder, Danny Muller and Robin Kieft failed to do so before him despite being part of the first squad selection.
