Manchester United manager David Moyes has denied rumours that there is a rift between him and striker Robin van Persie, according to ESPN.
“It couldn’t be further from the truth,” said Moyes. “I keep saying it is untrue but for some reason people don’t want to write it or hear it.
“But it is the fact. Most people know that I talk pretty straight. If there was something wrong I would be the first one to come out and say it.
“I have a really good relationship with Robin, as I do with all the players. But when you are not winning, people look for reasons, and probably think I am not getting on with Robin.”
Moyes had hoped the 30-year-old forward would return by the Christmas and New Year period but missed out on last Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Chelsea.
The former Arsenal captain has been kept out by a thigh injury but according to United’s physios he is ready to play and has resumed training.
