Ex-Manchester United star unhappy with life at Euro giants; striker snipes at head coach

Posted by

Robin van Persie‘s unhappiness at Fenerbahce has resurfaced once again, with the forward unhappy with his limited opportunities with the Turkish giants.

The Netherlands international ended three seasons at Manchester United in the summer when he was sold by the Red Devils, with Louis van Gaal deeming the experienced hitman to be surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.

The 32-year-old has struggled to impress in Istanbul, and while he has managed nine goals in 20 appearances, he has failed to establish himself as a regular starter, making only 11 starts in the Super Lig.

Despite being tipped for a move back to England during the January transfer window—with Chelsea understood to be keen on the striker—van Persie remained at Fenerbahce.

However, RVP has admitted that he remains disgruntled at Fener, after being substituted during his side’s Europa League win against Lokomotiv Moscow on Tuesday.

“Fenerbahce paid a big transfer fee for me so I want to help the team,” RVP fumed, speaking to Turkish source Fanatik [as per the Mirror].

“But I cannot contribute as much as I want when I am taken off each game. I cannot be efficient like this,” he continued.

“We have to find a solution for this situation.”
