Redknapp says Man Utd striker Van Persie suffering confidence crisis

Former Liverpool star Jamie Redknapp feels Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is suffering a confidence crisis.

Redknapp wrote in the Daily Mail: "Last season, it was all about Van Persie. He was Fergie's golden boy but under Moyes it's been a different story. United have been in poor form and so has the Dutchman. Wayne Rooney's new contract shows how much the club value him and, little by little, you can see the confidence seeping away from Van Persie.

"I am not suggesting he is a bad player. He is a sensational footballer and he was No 7 in my list of the top foreigners to grace the Premier League. But, at 30, Van Persie is not getting any younger and, if he is still not happy by the summer, I wouldn't be surprised if United decide he is surplus to requirements."
