Moyes has enormous shoes to fill after succeeding British football’s most successful manager in Sir Alex Ferguson – but Van Persie is convinced he is the right man to keep the trophies coming in.
“Sir Alex is a huge presence, but already the new manager has come in and impressed everybody greatly,” he told Nuts magazine. “There’s a new coaching set-up but the attitude of the players remains identical.
“I know he is a good manager who did an excellent job at Everton. His teams were always mentally strong and united, which is hard to play against.
“Now we can see his abilities and positive approach in training. I can say already that I’m going to enjoy working with him.”
