Van Persie said, “It is not up to me.”

“For the moment I am staying here for 18 months. That is it really. I can’t look into the future. I don’t know what is going to happen after that. We shall have to wait and see.”

Van Persie has only scored eight goals in 25 appearances this season, and he knows that his form so far this season has not been good enough, “This year I have played something like 20 games and I have scored eight goals – I am not happy with that. I want to score more. I will do everything, every day in training and during the games, I will keep doing what I have been doing for the last 10 years to make those goals.”

“Obviously we are not scoring enough goals, including me. I have to be honest. I think everyone in the team is responsible. Everyone feels responsible. I do definitely.

“It is a very thin line between scoring a load or goals and only a couple. I know what I have to do to create those opportunities. I will keep doing that. At the moment, it is not enough. I know that. I will do everything I can to improve that.

“In my last couple of games I didn’t score. Can I really blame myself for that? I am always asking myself that question.

“Even in games against Cambridge and top games, how many chances do strikers get. One? Two? So you have to take them.”

Manchester United paid Arsenal £24 million in 2012 to sign the Netherlands captain, who has netted 56 goals for the Red Devils over the past three years.
