Manchester United Forward Robin Van Persie Apologises To Team-Mates Over Olympiacios Outburst

Attacker claims attack was not aimed at Moyes either. 

Unsettled Manchester United front man Robin van Persie is understood to have apologised to his Red Devils team-mates for after the Dutchman had appeared to criticise some of them in the aftermath of the club’s shock loss to Olympiacios earlier in the week, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The experienced Netherlands gave a startling interview to a TV station in his homeland following the Premier League champions’ 2-0 loss to Olympiacios in Athens in the first leg of their Uefa Champions League round-of-16 clash on Tuesday night in which Van Persie claimed that his team-mates were running into the same spaces that he was occupying in the area.

And those post-match comments were then widely publicised and taken to be a thinly veiled attack on some of his colleagues at Old Trafford, as well as new head coach David Moyes as well, especially in light of the shock reverse in the Greek capital.

However, it is now believed that the 30-year-old has since taken his club mates aside during training at Carrington to make it absolutely clear that he was not intending to criticise them, with the player himself understood to be “shocked” at the perception of him as a moaner.
