van persieReports in Netherlands had suggested that the Dutch striker had grown unhappy with David Moyes’s management style since he took over the Premiership champions in the summer.

Training schedules under Moyes are said to be more intense than those under previous manager Sir Alex Ferguson, apparently one of the main reasons for the alleged unhappiness of Van Persie.

The rumours have been intensified by the fact that the striker is yet to hit top form this season, and has missed several matches with injuries.

However Moyes has dismissed any rumours that his star man is unhappy, and stated a toe injury is the real reason behind his recent indifferent form, and absence during Wednesday’s win over Real Sociedad in the Champions League.

Moyes said, “That’s complete nonsense, he had a couple of sore toes and I told him before the Southampton game last Saturday that, if I played him in that, he would miss the Sociedad game to try to give his toes and groin a rest.”
