Van Persie targets better performances at Man Utd

Robin van Persie is not satisfied with the start to life he has made at Manchester United, despite scoring twice for the club during their 2-1 Champions League win over CFR Cluj, the BBC has reported.

Van Persie levelled the scores for United after Cluj had taken the lead inside 15 minutes. The former Arsenal striker replied with half an hour gone and later put United in front shortly after half-time, converting a Wayne Rooney free-kick with his shoulder, looping the ball over the Cluj goalkeeper.

The brace meant that van Persie has now scored seven goals in seven games for United since completing his move to Old Trafford from Arsenal shortly before the start of the new Premier League season. Van Persie had entered the final year of his Arsenal contract and, despite being the club captain and top scorer last season, signalled that he was not likely to sign a new deal.

A transfer to United eventually followed and despite the statistics suggesting van Persie has made a strong start at his new home, the player himself is not so impressed. He said: “I am on a good run but I would like to do better. I would like to make more assists than I have. It is not only about goals. I think I am on the way [to settling in well]. I want to make more assists, I have made only one. I would like to improve that.
