Star striker happy with new manager’s methods.
Manchester United striker has rejected claims that he is unhappy with working under new manager David Moyes, according to Dutch publication De Telegraaf.
Rumours surfaced yesterday that the former Arsenal man was unsettled at Old Trafford after the surprise retirement of legendary boss Sir Alex Ferguson in May, and was not enjoying life with Moyes at the helm.
United have made an indifferent start to their Premier League campaign, looking in particularly poor form as they succumbed to a 1-0 defeat to rivals Liverpool at Anfield, making it two consecutive games without scoring.
A source close to the player claimed van Persie was unsure about some of Moyes’ training methods, which followed up some uncharacteristically angry behaviour by the Dutchman on the pitch in his side’s defeat to Liverpool at the weekend.
However, the player himself has come out to express his admiration for Moyes, and says he feels there is a good atmosphere at the club at the moment.
“It’s great working with the new manager David Moyes,” he said.
“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.”
The 30-year-old joined Manchester United last summer in a controversial move from rivals Arsenal, and his 26 league goals helped fire the Red Devils to their 20th title, and also saw him claim the Golden Boot for a second season in a row.
