Moyes slams 'spat with Van Persie' rumours as 'complete nonsense'

ANI  |  London 

Manchester United manager David Moyes has denied claims that he has fallen out with star striker Robin van Persie after he was reportedly seen arguing with Van Persie on the training ground ahead of United's 1-0 win over Real Sociedad.

Moyes' move follows previous claims that the Dutchman is unhappy with Moyes' coaching methods, along with talk in Holland that he is eyeing a switch to Real Madrid in January.

According to, Moyes insisted that the suggestions of a spat between the pair are totally wrong, saying that it is 'complete nonsense' as he has found Van Persie very easy to work with, contrary to rumours.

Although Van Persie is looking far from his best despite scoring seven goals in ten matches this season, Moyes however, said that this is because of his injuries rather than a purported spat with his manager, adding that the Dutchman has been taking injections to counter injuries to his toes, which have been bothering him for a long time.
