The Netherlands international has struggled for both form in front of goal and with various different fitness issues too for much of this campaign at Old Trafford under new Red Devils boss David Moyes.
However, despite finding the back of the net on just the 13 occasions in total so far this season in his 20 matches in all competitions, Van Gaal says that he is not worried about Van Persie’s form going into this summer’s World Cup.
“I think he should be great in the tournament because he loves to play in the Dutch squad,” said van Gaal. “He has shown that in all the qualification matches more than ever, because he’s our top scorer, and I hope he can continue this.
“The football from Man United now is for him, maybe difficult, but then he will wish to show his techniques. Techniques in the Dutch team for him is higher.
“The Dutch team might benefit, you never know.”
