Moyes: Van Persie not leaving

Manchester United manager David Moyes has rejected claims by Mark Lawrenson that Robin van Persie has asked to leave Old Trafford.

David Moyes: Insists Robin van Persie is staying at Old Trafford

Pundit and former Liverpool player Lawrenson made his observation in an interview on an Irish radio station on Friday.

Given Lawrenson knows Moyes through a connection at Preston, the comments were noteworthy, even if United privately distanced themselves from them.

However, offered the opportunity to respond following Saturday's 1-0 home defeat by Newcastle, when Van Persie returned from a groin injury after a four-match absence, Moyes did not mince his words.

"That is absolute nonsense," said Moyes.

"I don't know what harder or tougher word I could say but that's as good as I've got."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
