Manchester United fear further Robin van Persie criticism

Manchester United's media and PR officials are nervously preparing for further public criticism from Robin van Persie, according to the Daily Mail.

Old Trafford bosses were left reeling after the Dutch striker openly criticised David Moyes' tactics following the 2-0 Champions League defeat to Olympiakos last Tuesday.

Van Persie told Dutch TV station NOS: “My team-mates are in some of the areas where I want to play.

“This makes it difficult for me.

“Then I have to change my tactics to suit my team-mates and play outside my zone.”

The 30-year-old has since apologised to his Manchester United team mates, but with an international break on the way, officials are fearing a repeat situation when he meets the Dutch media.

Traditionally the Dutch media is more no-holds-barred than their British counterparts and Van Persie is likely to meet questions regarding his reported discontent at Old Trafford and will have to fend off links over a potential return to Arsenal.

Arsene Wenger has been linked with a summer move for Van Persie after reported emerged that he met his agent Darren Dein to discuss the potential implications of a return to the Emirates.

Van Persie's comments about his team mates clearly spoke volumes of his growing unhappiness at Manchester United just 18 months after joining them from the Gunners.
