Man Utd’s new boy Daley Blind has revealed that training is incredibly serious under Dutch boss Louis van Gaal, as reported by the Daily Star.
The Man Utd boss has previously organised triple training sessions, although these are not a regular part of his programme.
Double training is, however, the norm, with the extra session involving work in the gym, to improve conditioning, and regularly features the use of exercise bikes.
Blind, who joined the Manchester side from Ajax this summer, is also of the opinion that his fellow players are enjoying the work under the former Barcelona and Bayern Munich manager.
He said: “I think the players like to work with him.
“Everyone is picking it up very well.
“Training is very hard and very serious and we improve every day and you could see that in the first half.
“We have seen that in the first half but now we have to see it over 90 minutes. The play is better though.”
The midfielder has experience with Van Gaal before, having worked with him for the Dutch national side.
Blind played a consistent role this summer under Van Gaal at the World Cup in Brazil, where they finished third.
They finished the tournament without losing a game in normal time, something Van Gaal enjoyed.
