Every so often, Dutch coach Raymond Verheijen decides to blow some steam off about either David Moyes or Arsene Wenger and last night, it was the turn of Moyes again.
From dinosaur tactics to blame falling at the feet of Sir Bobby and Sir Alex, Verheijen’s no holds barred attack scythed Moyes in every conceivable way but it wasn’t just the Scot who had the finger pointed at him.
Verheijen accused Robin van Persie of lying both about Moyes at Manchester United and his future at the club.
And players should understand that saying things they don’t mean will always backfire especially when you keep losing https://t.co/gfbJnfU25N

All season long, Verheijen (being Dutch) held a personal vendetta against Moyes because of Van Persie’s injury problems so anything he says when it comes to him, it’s hard not to think there is a subjective motive behind it – this being the latest example of such a thing.
However, as much as it hurts to say it, despite the fact he went about it in completely the wrong way, Verheijen has been correct all season about Moyes and although Van Persie has pledged his future to Manchester United, the sceptic in us has to consider whether he does truly want to stay at the club.
