Robin van Persie happy under Moyes
Robin van Persie has refuted reports he has not been impressed by David Moyes as he insisted he is enjoying playing for the new Manchester United manager.

The Dutchman enjoyed a close rapport with Sir Alex Ferguson, who signed him from Arsenal last summer, and there were suggestions he felt Moyes' coaching left something to be desire.
But Van Persie, who is currently preparing for the Netherlands’ World Cup qualifier against Estonia on Friday, is adamant that is not the case.
He told De Telegraaf: "It's great working with the new manager David Moyes. He has his own style and methods and I like this.
"I'm happy with the style of Moyes. He does his own training sessions, he's close with the players and, with his staff, prepares us very well for the next opponent. That keeps us in shape. Luckily, winning the title last year gave us hunger for more."
But he cut a frustrated figure in Sunday’s 1-0 defeat at Liverpool and the Daily Star quoted an unnamed friend of the striker saying: “Robin isn’t happy. He really misses Fergie, who he loved playing under.”
