The 29-year-old admitted he was â€śquite disappointedâ€ť after his chipped spot-kick was saved by Kelvin Davis.
â€śItâ€™s three points and a little headache for me,â€ť Van Persie told Sky Sports and MUTV. â€śI donâ€™t know what I was thinking with the penalty, I wanted to hit it hard like I always do but at the last second I changed my mind, somehow. That wasnâ€™t good enough so that was a bit of a down. Iâ€™m quite disappointed to be fair. I ask a certain standard from my game and when something like that happens, when youâ€™re 2-1 down, you canâ€™t take a penalty like that.
â€śIt is me who is to blame. I donâ€™t know what went wrong but something went wrong big time, so I have to work on that. After that I was very relieved that we got the three points, trust me.â€ť
