Robin van Persie has moved to dispel rumours that he is unconvinced by new manager David Moyes and his coaching methods at the club.
Speculation has recently been rife that the striker hadn’t been stimulated by Moyes’ methods since he replaced Sir Alex Ferguson at the helm of Manchester United.
Van Persie has already started his goalscoring, where he left off last year, kicking off with a double against Wigan in the Community Shield before scoring another double in United’s Premier League opener against Swansea.
However the striker barely had a chance against Chelsea, and against Liverpool he was ineffective to say the least. His only notable chance at Anfield came when in which he fired into the side-netting.
The Dutchman is currently on international duty, but has nonetheless moved to put an end to the rumours about his United future by insisting he has enjoyed working with Moyes.
Van Persie was quoted as having said: ‘It’s great working with the new manager David Moyes.’
“He has his own style 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 is 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.” continued an approving Van Persie.
The Dutchman was United’s marquee signing of last year, although this year Moyes almost completely fluffed his lines when it came to big transfers.
Marouane Fellaini's arrival came in the final minutes of the transfer window, bolstering their limited midfield options. But that shouldn't cover what was a disappointing window for Moyes, as he missed out on a whole host of other targets including the likes of Leighton Baines, Sami Khedira, Ander Herrera, Fabio Coentrao and Cesc Fabregas.
It could be said that Manchester United overpaid for Fellaini, with Moyes missing the option to cash in on the Belgians release clause that ran out only weeks before the end of the window. United were then forced to pay an extra £4million for the playmaker.
