Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho paid a great tribute to Daley Blind after he rejoined Ajax on Tuesday.
The Dutchman has moved back to Ajax on a four-year contract for a fee of £18million after spending four years with the Old Trafford outfit, making 141 appearances.
During his time in Manchester, he won the Europa League, FA Cup, League Cup and Community Shield.

And speaking following the move, Mourinho insisted that Blind was one of the greatest professionals he has worked with.
'I would like to say a big thank you to Daley Blind for everything he has done for the club since he joined in 2014,' the boss told the club's official website.
'I have to say, that in my 18 years of management, Daley is one of the most professional players, both on and off the pitch, that I have had the pleasure to work with.

'I would like to take this opportunity to wish him all the very best as he rejoins his boyhood club, Ajax, and thank him from the bottom of my heart for his commitment and dedication over the past two seasons.'
The 28-year-old utility man was mainly used as a squad player by Mourinho and his role was going to become even more reduced next season.
United have signed right back Diogo Dalot, Brazilian midfielder Fred and they are still looking to acquire the services of a new left back.
