Manchester United head coach David Moyes has sent out a stark warning to the rest of the Premier League by claiming that prolific front man Robin van Persie can get even better than currently is, according to reports on Sky Sports.

The Netherlands international has only been at Old Trafford for a year now after originally arriving in the north west from rivals Arsenal for an initial fee of just £22.5 million last August.

And in his debut campaign with the Premier League giants, the 30-year-old proved a huge success by managing to find the back of the net on 30 occasion in just 48 matches in total in all competitions, including an equally impressive 26 strikes in only 38 league outings as Van Persie won both the golden boot, and his first-ever league title in England.

However, the Dutchman’s new boss at United, David Moyes, thinks that there is still way more to come from the boot of Van Persie, who has already started the new campaign in the same vein that he ended the previous season by registering doubles in the Community Shield win over FA Cup holders Wigan Athletic at Wembley Stadium earlier this month, and then again at Swansea City in their Premier League opener at the Liberty stadium on Saturday evening.

“I hope he can (get better). With his experience, I hope so. His goals against Swansea were top goals, of a top goalscorer,” said Moyes.

“The performance of the team, we can play better, but I thought the finishes made the difference.”
