Moyes urged to sell Man Utd star Van Persie

Former QPR star Martin Allen says David Moyes needs to sell Manchester United striker Robin van Persie. Mad Dog wrote in the Daily Mail: "Over the past couple of weeks through various news outlets, social media networks and comments from certain people, it's obvious that RVP quite clearly wants out of Manchester United. Moyes will have heard about the rumours that the player wants to leave because he only wanted to play for Ferguson.

"Any manager that has a top player, if he's not 100per cent focussed on playing for the club and playing for the manager it will rub off on the rest of the squad. It will destabilise the rest of the players and it can cause disharmony.

"Dutch coach Raymond Verheijin called Moyes a 'dinosaur' and labelled his training methods 'prehistoric.' He said they would make Van Persie injured and now he's out for a month. When that sort of information is leaked at your club you know you've got to act.

"Watching Danny Welbeck against Aston Villa on Sunday - there's a striker who can smell an opportunity. In front of Wayne Rooney he showed positive energy, freedom, desire, willingness and there was no sulking. He was a hungry, focussed centre forward that looked like he wants to make that position his own."
