Robin van Persie's post-game remarks after Manchester United's 2-0 Champions League defeat against Olympiakos have caused quite a stir this morning.

The Dutchman, who spurned a vital chance that would have gifted his side a valuable away goal late on, told a TV station in his home country that he was finding it hard to get into areas of the pitch that he likes to because some of his team-mates are already there. He added that this was 'a pity'.

The debate has raged all morning over what exactly Van Persie meant by his remarks, and whether he was hinting at a deeper-lying problem at Old Trafford.

That is the last thing that under-fire Manchester United boss David Moyes needs following last night's disastrous result.

The Red Devils are on the verge of exiting the Champions League at the hands of a side they were expected to beat, while they stand little chance of earning a place in next year's competition via their league position.

But was Van Persie hinting at a deep-lying resentment towards his manager or making a simple observation? The footage from the interview last night has been released, so check it out and make your own mind up.
