RVP excited by United’s revolution

Manchester-United-Training-and-Press-ConferenceRobin Van Persie believes Manchester United will return to success after this summer spending spree and the Dutchman has revealed he’s raring to go, as United look to finally kickstart their season against QPR on Sunday.

A defeat and two draws in their opening three league games represented a poor start for Louis Van Gaal, but Van Persie insisted United’s £150m spending spree will pay its dividends and that he’s excited about playing with some world class players, such as Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao.

“I can’t wait to go and train and play with the world class players we have signed – wow!” said Van Persie.

“That feeling, that we are going to perform well, has only got stronger after the buying of players over the last weeks. I find it very exciting, the arrival of all those new players.

“For me personally, it’s brilliant to go and play with some of the best players in the world. It’s great that I can go and train and play with them every day.’’

Much has been made of Van Gaal’s decision to adopt a 3-5-2 or 3-4-1-2 formation, but Van Persie insisted that with all the talent United have bought this summer, there is no room for mistakes and players must adapt to the new system.

“It’s plain and simple,” he said. “The manager chooses his tactics. We, the players, have nothing else to do than to execute what the manager has in his mind.

“Tactics and formation are matters of the manager and his staff, not something the players must get involved in. We, the players, have not been educated as coaches. We are players, we play. I don’t think we should even want to get involved in tactical discussions.’

“As captain of Holland I may have the right to get involved in tactical discussions, but even there I choose not to.’’ [Whether it’s] 4-3-3, 3-5-2, nothing can be an excuse for another defeat.

“We have to adapt to every manager. There’s not one way or method in football.’’
