Manchester United‘s Robin van Persie has admitted that his form this season has not been up to scratch and that he’s not sure if the cub will extend his contract.
The Dutchman fired the Red Devils to Premier League gory in 2012/13 after joining them from bitter rivals Arsenal, but his form tailed off last season under the stewardship if David Moyes.
RVP’s presence in the United XI this season has since been put under threat, with the addition of Radamel Falcao and the emergence of James Wilson having boosted new boss Louis van Gaal’s options.
The 31-year-old has eight goals to his name, but he believes that his, and the team’s, tally is not good enough right now:
“Obviously we are not scoring enough goals, including me. I have to be honest. I think everyone in the team is responsible. Everyone feels responsible. I do definitely.” He is quoted by the Daily Mail.
“It is a very thin line between scoring a load or goals and only a couple. I know what I have to do to create those opportunities. I will keep doing that. At the moment, it is not enough. I know that. I will do everything I can to improve that.
“In my last couple of games I didn’t score. Can I really blame myself for that? I am always asking myself that question.”
Van Persie went on to suggest that his future beyond the end of next season is not clear, with his contract due to expire:
“For the moment I am staying here for 18 months.” he is quoted by the same publication. “That is it really. I can’t look into the future. I don’t know what is going to happen after that. We shall have to wait and see.”
