Van Persie unhappy at Manchester United

Published 59 Comments

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is growing increasingly frustrated with life at Old Trafford, and is yet to be convinced that new manager David Moyes is the right man to replace Sir Alex Ferguson, according to the Daily Star.

Despite starting the 2013/14 campaign brightly, with two goals in the reigning Premier League champions' opening two games, the 30-year-old cut a forlorn figure in the goalless draw with Chelsea, and the 1-0 defeat against Liverpool at Anfield last weekend.

Van Persie has reportedly told friends that he is missing having Ferguson around, having played an instrumental role in convincing him to quit Arsenal for Manchester United just over 12 months ago.

The £25million man is also unconvinced by some of Moyes's new training methods, leaving the former Everton boss with a battle to win over his star striker.

"Robin isn't happy and when that's the case he can't hide it on the pitch," a source told the Daily Star. "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."

After overcoming any issues surrounding Wayne Rooney's long-term future at Old Trafford, the last thing Moyes will want is another issue with one of his leading marksmen, so he'll be looking to iron out any problems with the Dutchman upon his return from international duty next week.
