Liverpool legend Hansen slams rumours coming out of Van Persie camp

Liverpool legend Alan Hansen has hit out at all the rumours surrounding Manchester United striker Robin van Persie.

Hansen wrote in the Telegraph: "Just when David Moyes should be looking forward to a clear week ahead of the crucial game against Liverpool on Sunday, a bit of respite, Van Persie's reaction to being substituted during the win at West Bromwich Albion ensures that everyone is now focusing on him and his future at Old Trafford.

"It has presented Moyes with an amazingly difficult situation, one in which there can be no winners, but the reality is that the persistent speculation surrounding Van Persie is an indictment of the modern game.

"It is too easy now for players to allow dissatisfaction and unhappiness to emerge, either through social media or a quiet word here or there with the intention of it eventually seeping out before being denied."
