Van Persie insists his ways not undermining Man Utd boss Moyes

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie insists he's happy working with manager David Moyes. Van Persie admits that his love for the game and hunger to improve means he is always on his manager's case.

"As I have got older and more experienced, I have become more sensitive to what my coaches are doing," said the Dutchman.

"I want to know why we are we doing this or why are we training like that.

"I did not ask those kinds of questions when I was a young player, but now I find it interesting to study why my coaches are making certain decisions.

"I want to know why they do things and why they say things to the players, and why they want to play a certain way.

"I think much more about all those things at this stage of my career. I watch the managerial process all of the time.

"I have had a lot of changes in coaches over the last couple of seasons.

"I was eight years with Arsene Wenger, at Arsenal, and, with Holland, it was a similar steady situation with Bert van Marwijk."
