Van Persie Blames His Manchester United TeamMates

Former Arsenal captain Robin van Persie puts the blame on his team mates for making his job more tougher in the pitch.


After a shambolic performance in Greece in which Manchester United was handed a 2 goal defeat by Olympiakos, RVP talked to the media about the game, his miss and also commented on Moyes.

He said,

“Sometimes I try to find ways to do more but in the areas I wanted to play, my team-mates were often there. This makes it difficult for me,”

“Then I have to change my tactics to suit my team-mates, and play outside my zone. It’s a pity.”

“We played too slow and could therefore create little.”

“I rushed that shot. That’s a shame because I don’t get a lot of chances so when you get one, you have to score.”

Despite all these, Dutchman refuses to blame his manager. He continued,

“He’s (Moyes) working hard at it, and so are we. Sometimes we play well, but not all the time. We don’t have luck on our side.

“It’s easy to point the finger at someone, but I’m not like that. We have to do better.”
