Robin van Persie might not be in the best of form for Manchester United right now but he scored an outrageous goal in training with the Netherlands today.
The 30-year-old embarrassed Swansea goalkeeper Michel Vorm with a nutmeg flick and in a season where Van Persie has struggled to be at his very best, this is the sort of confidence you want to see the Dutchman exuding.
Is Van Persie happy to be a Manchester United player right now? I don’t think any player at United is happy right now because of our current form but back at the start of the season, Van Persie insisted he wanted to stay at United beyond his current contract – hopefully at least part of that opinion still rings true.
United, and Van Persie, need to kick on from now until the end of the season and if we are to have any chance of overcoming the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City in March, we’ll need Van Persie back on form.
