Van Persie: It's great working with Moyes

Robin van Persie has insisted he enjoys working with Manchester United boss David Moyes after reports surfaced suggesting the Dutchman was unhappy at Old Trafford.

The 30-year-old striker was reportedly concerned with Moyes's new training methods and allegedly remained unconvinced as to his suitability for the job.

Moyes was handpicked by Ferguson to replace him, and van Persie has now moved to rubbish the reports suggesting he was struggling to adapt to the new United boss's tactics.

"It's great working with the new manager David Moyes," van Persie told 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."

The Dutchman has won the last two Premier League Golden Boot awards, and kicked off this campaign in fine style with two excellent goals against Swansea on opening day.

He's since failed to find the net in subsequent games against Chelsea and Liverpool, a spell that's left United with four points from their first three games.

Moyes has come in for criticism from fans and the press after a strangely disjointed transfer window at the club. United's only major signing, Marouane Fellaini, was signed on deadline day but only after the club had failed to secure other targets.
