Van Persie: Give LVG Time, Results Will Come

Manchester United striker, Robin van Persie, has askred the club’s fans for patience with new manager, Louis van Gaal.

The Dutchman returned to the starting line-up on Sunday, but couldn’t help his side to secure more than one point.

"I worked with him for two years, and he's very clear,” Van Persie said.

“He's clear in what he asks of each player in the team every day. So, where I can, I will help the other players.

"I think that everyone has faith and everyone believes in the staff and players. We have great players, and it's just a matter of time before the points will start coming in."

Van Gaal, meanwhile, revealed that Shinji Kagawa doesn’t want to play his brand of football as he explained the Japan international’s absence from his team this season so far.

"Kagawa did not wish to fulfil my wishes, my philosophy when I played him in the United States," Van Gaal said.

"Kagawa was a No.10 at (Borussia) Dortmund but I want to try him at No. 6 and No. 8.”
