Robin van Persie speaks out after leaving Manchester United


Striker Robin van Persie says there are no hard feelings between him and the Manchester club after he was sold to Fenerbahce.

The 31-year-old moved to Turkey after an agreement was reached between the two clubs.

He scored 58 goals in 105 appearances for United since his £24m move from Arsenal in 2012.

"It was a situation where I could see it coming, if I'm really honest," van Persie said after joining the Turkish club.

"I could get used to the idea for quite a bit. It was not a situation where it was just happening from day to day so I could get used to the situation – that is football.

"From my side, there are no hard feelings with how it went. It's part of football, it's part of life.

"I had a good moment with the players the day before I came to Istanbul so that was special. Then you see that everyone really appreciated my time there - that was important for me.

"I highly appreciate the work of Ed Woodward, the CEO of Manchester United. The way he dealt with this transfer is from a high level, it's very classy.

“He proved he's a true gentleman in the way he dealt with the whole situation. Ed, if you're listening, thank you."
