Robin van Persie not comfortable with David Moyes

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie did not seem to have the best relationship with the club’s former boss, David Moyes.

Despite having been relatively injury free for the last five years, the Dutch international appeared to suffer several absences from the first team under Moyes. Unsurprisingly, he has been regularly fit again under the Louis van Gaal. After concerns were raised about his goalscoring record, van Persie has responded with two goals in his last two matches. The record is even better when his goals and assists against Hull City in the 3-0 win are taken into account.

His latest goals helped United get a 2-1 win overSouthampton, who have been one of the surprise packages this season. This victory also meant that the club has won five matches on the bounce. This improved run of form sees them third in the table – only five points behind second placed Manchester City. After the match, van Persie appeared to take a dig at his former boss Moyes by suggesting that the current run of form feels like the ‘good old days’ under Sir Alex Ferguson. United had a forgetful 10 months under Moyes, as the club slipped to new lows.

"They (the supporters) were unbelievable. I just want to say that it felt like the old days, like two years ago. It was a really special day, and they were unbelievable.I want to thank them because I know they've been travelling from all over England, maybe some from abroad. It's a long journey. Thanks everyone for coming. You are absolutely amazing,” said the striker on the club’s official television channel. The goals against Southampton help prevent Persie take his league tally to 6 for the season. He still remains a long way away from the likes of Sergio Aguero, who has 14.
