Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - - SPORT - The Guardian & Agen­cies ■ sports­desk@hin­dus­tan­times.com

Robin van Per­sie has re­vealed he was sur­prised by Sir Alex Fer­gu­son’s de­par­ture from Manch­ester United, while the Dutch striker also ad­mit­ted he is not sat­is­fied with his re­cent per­for­mances un­der new man­ager Louis van Gaal.

Speak­ing to Dutch news­pa­per De Volk­skrant on Fri­day, Van Per­sie ad­mit­ted he had been shocked by the de­par­ture of the man who per­suaded him to leave Arse­nal in Au­gust 2012.

“My decision to come to Manch­ester was partly be­cause of the pres­ence of Fer­gu­son, or ex­cuse me, Sir Alex. And he told me he’d stay for another three years. I en­joyed his ap­proach.”
