Van Persie: I must improve at Manchester United

Robin van Persie came to Manchester United's rescue once again on Tuesday evening, as his double saved the Red Devils from potential embarrassment against CFR Cluj.

United had fallen behind to the Romanian side in their Champions League Group H encounter, but Van Persie struck twice to ensure his side posted maximum points from their opening two European fixtures.

Van Persie has now scored seven goals since his £24 million summer move from Arsenal to Manchester United, including a match winning hat-trick against Southampton and a victory sealing penalty at Anfield.

The 29-year-old, however, is not entirely satisfied with his contribution since transferring to Old Trafford, and believes he should be providing more than just goals for the team.

Van Persie says he should be laying on the goals as well as scoring, just like teammate Wayne Rooney did against Cluj, with the latter twice providing the ball for the former to score.

"I think I am on the way to settling in well, but I would like to make more assists," Van Persie told reporters after the game.

"It is not only about goals but I want to make more assists. I would like to improve that. I am on a good run but I would like to do better."
