RVP not worried about future

robin-van-persie-manchester-united-515062Robin Van Persie has insisted he is not concerned by his future at Manchester United and said he’s determined to prove he remains at the top of his game.

The Dutchman, who scored just 10 Premier League goals last season, has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, but said he remained calm despite the speculation surrounding him.

“Am I worried? No, I’m totally relaxed,” the Dutchman said.

“I have a contract with this club until 2016. Things could change now, but that all depends on Manchester United not me.”

Last week the Dutchman claimed he wanted to fight for his spot in the starting XI and was determined to play regularly, a concept he reiterated today.

“Believe me, I’m relaxed – I’m not going to be part of a puppet show,” the United striker said.

“In August I’m 32. But I still have the ambition to play for another eight years.

“In a few years’ time I may have to accept that I will no longer play at the very highest level.

“I don’t think that moment is coming now. I still feel very, very fit. Playing in the first-team is very important for me. This is why I will probably step down one level when I am 36 or 37. But not now.”
