DALEY BLIND admitted it was his fault that Manchester United lost in Basel.
But the Dutchman insists the defeat is not a “reality check” for Jose Mourinho’s side.
It leaves United in danger of finishing second in Group A and landing one of the big boys in the knockout stages.
Blind said: “The second half went up and down, they created the possibility, gave a good cross, he came round the back and I was a bit late.
“We have enough confidence in the group going forward. It’s not a reality check.
