Former Manchester united wing player Andrei Kanchelskis has blasted Louis Van Gaal for selling Robin Van Persie in the summer.
The Dutch striker was sold to Turkish side Fernabache in the summer for €6.3M. Kanchelskis mentioned that the World Cup had effect on players performance and so united shouldn’t have sold Van Persie due to his poor form just after the tournament.
Van Persie did not have a fantastic season last summer with united after suffering series of injuries and also complained about Louis Van Gaal training method. Van Persie score only 10 goals in 29 appearances for the red devils, subsequently the club felt he was surplus to requirement partly due to his huge weekly salary.
Van Persie was the highest goal scorer in the Premier league in 2012/2013 but had a woeful outing under David Moyes and Louis Van Gaal. With united now struggling to score, Van Persie would have eased the goal burden on Wayne Rooney and Anthony Martial who are the likely players to get the goals for Manchester united.
In all fairness, the united attack needed to be over-hauled, Wayne Rooney was approaching his 30’s, Van Persie was already in his 30’s and on loan Colombian international Radamal Falcao was also approaching his 30’s, this are the reasons why the united forward line performed poorly last season
