Robin van Persie has moved to dismiss claims that he is unhappy with Manchester United manager David Moyes' coaching methods at Old Trafford.
Van Persie left Arsenal in 2012 after winning the Premier League's Golden Boot. He switched to Manchester United and said he was looking forward to many years with Sir Alex Ferguson, but that didn't go so well as after one year with Ferguson, Moyes took over.
Rumours have circulated this week that the Dutchman has not been impressed with Moyes' management so far since replacing Ferguson. Van Persie started the Premier League season well, netting both goals in the Community Shield win over FA Cup winners Wigan Athletic. He also scored two of United's four on the opening day of the season against Swansea. Despite that, he has been goalless since.
After subdued performances against Chelsea and Liverpool, the rumours have intensified. The former Gunner is on international duty with Holland at the moment but was quick to quash those aforementioned rumours, insisting he is happy working under Moyes.
"It's great working with the new manager David Moyes," Van Persie is quoted as saying in De Telegraaf.
"He has his own style and methods and I like these. We are working very hard from the day we started our tour to Asia and Australia. This will result in good matches, that's for sure. There is a very good atmosphere at the club.
"I'm happy with the style of Moyes. He does his own training sessions, he's close with the players and prepares us with his staff very well for the next opponent. That keeps us in shape.
"Luckily, because the title of last year gave us hunger for more," he added.
Van Persie will be hoping to win his third consecutive Golden Boot this season, but with the form of strikers such as Arsenal's Olivier Giroud and Manchester City's Alvaro Negredo, it seems unlikely with his own form.
