Robin van Persie rumours denied by David Moyes

Published Add your comment

Robin van Persie is not unsettled at Manchester United, says David Moyes, who has denied claims from former Netherlands international Ronald de Boer that the striker will consider his future with the club in the summer.

Van Persie’s position with Manchester United has been called into question in recent weeks, particularly after the player was critical of his teammates following the defeat to Olympiacos in the Champions League.

Moyes is since reported to have grown tired of Van Persie’s supposed negative attitude, while De Boer claimed in a recent interview that the 30-year-old would look to leave Old Trafford were Manchester United not to make any signings of repute in the transfer window.

The Manchester United manager, however, has refuted these suggestions, claiming that all is well between him and Van Persie - something that was shown when the two travelled back to Manchester together after the Netherlands had played a friendly in France.

"I couldn't reply to that and I wouldn't know how Ronald de Boer would know that," Moyes told reporters.

"I travelled back from the [Netherlands] game with Robin the other night. I went to the game, watched them play and travelled back with him. I hardly feel I need to answer the question."

Van Persie, meanwhile, is in contention to start for Manchester United when they face West Brom at the Hawthorns this weekend - the venue of the final game played during the illustrious tenure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
