Striker Robin van Persie has tried to put an end to all the speculation surrounding his future at Manchester United by saying that he is happy at the club. The former Arsenal man has been linked with a move away from United in the summer with his former club being one of the potential destinations. This has primarily started after reportedly falling out with manager David Moyes over a number of aspects like tactics and training methods. Van Persie recently came out with a public criticism of the tactics of Moyes.
However, the club has not commented on this issue since the Dutchman is one of the important players in the squad. Further, there has also been rumours about a potential fallout with Wayne Rooney. Recent statistics have shown that Rooney and van Persie have passed the ball between each other only eight times in the last six matches. This statistic gets worse since six of them were from the kick-off. The 30-year-old has scored 14 times in the 23 matches this season. He has had a tough time with injuries and it has been reported that he thinks that the training methods of Moyes is to blame.
Van Persie previously struggled with injuries at Arsenal, but he has been fit for most of the last few years.
“I don’t mind if my performances get dissected and people criticise what I’ve done on the pitch. They can talk about my game 24/7 for all I care… and a lot of those opinions and criticisms may actually be right. So I don’t mind that. What I need to address are the situations when people are taking it upon themselves to think for me, make assumptions, or interpret things as if they are me. The truth is I’m very happy here at this club,” said van Persie ahead of the Liverpool match.
