Robin van Persie

Robin van Persie's strike sent Manchester United on their way to victory over Liverpool.


It seems Manchester United's main striker Robin Van Persie is not happy with the training methods of new coach David Moyes, who replaced Sir Alex Ferguson this summer, reported Daily Star.

The 30-year-old Dutch footballer moved from Arsenal to Old Trafford in a £25 million deal last summer. Sir Alex Ferguson was one of the main reasons that forced him to take the drastic step.

However, Robin Van Persie is reportedly not happy in Manchester United after the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson and is miffed with some training methods of former Everton manager.

"Robin isn't happy and when that's the case he can't hide it on the pitch. When he's frustrated he is capable of doing something silly, and you could see that against Liverpool. He feels it isn't the same with the new manager as he misses working with Fergie, who he really loved playing under. Some of Moyes' training methods are not to his liking either," Daily Star quoted a friend of van Persie as saying. 

Robin Van Persie looked lost at Anfield on Sunday despite scoring two goals in Manchester United's first two games. The goalless draw with Chelsea and 1-0 defeat at Liverpool might have hurt him.

It may be recalled that David Moyes tried to sign some big names like Cesc Fabregas, Mesut Ozil and Thiago Alcantara, but had failed. Ozil instead moved to van Persie's former club Arsenal, and Arsene Wenger seems to be the reason for the move. Fabregas refused to leave Nou Camp despite the doors being opened for him to move to Old Trafford.

With the Gunners going all out to bring in big players to the club, they seem to be aiming big, and van Persie's combination with Ozil could be dangerous.
