Manchester United star Robin van Persie has revealed that the club’s players held thorough post mortem after their 5-3 defeat to Leicester City last weekend, as reported by the Daily Star.
The Dutch international forward saw his team slump from a 3-1 lead to a 5-3 loss, conceding four goals without any reply from the Old Trafford club.
Van Persie’s first season at Man Utd saw them win the Premier League title, but it has been downhill from there for the ex-Arsenal man.
The prolific forward was a key part of David Moyes’s side as they fell to a seventh placed finish in the league last season, missing out on the Champions League as a result.
Van Persie has also been heavily involved since Louis van Gaal’s reign in charge of the club began, and the Dutch coach has only managed one win thus far since arriving.
It is therefore understandable that one of the club’s more veteran players was involved in a meeting, and the striker praised the discussion, saying: “It’s the right way forward as you have to speak about the good things you do but also in the areas you can improve, which is what we did the next day.
“Everyone came in and we had a long meeting about the game. It was a really good meeting as everyone spoke up and shared their feelings.
“Everyone’s on the same page.”
