Former Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie has put an end to speculations linking him with a return to the Premier league by claiming he is happy at Fenerbahce.
The 32 year old left Old Trafford last summer after he was told that he was no longer part of Louis Van Gaal’s plan for the future.
The striker moved to Turkish giants Fenerbahce but struggled at the beginning with the striker scoring 4 goals in 12 appearances in Turkey.
The striker also reportedly had issues with his manager Vitor Pereira, but it seems the Dutch international has started enjoying life in Turkey.
The striker told Turkish outlet Fanatik:
“I feel better about myself when I play. I think everyone is seeing this. I can do more things on the field. I can run, I’m more defensive, I can help the team a lot more.
“I hope I can score more goals. We won and I’m happy to play …”
He added: “I can only speak for myself. I’ve been used to this kind of pressure for the last 11 years. This is not a new situation for me. It makes me happy to be in fans’ expectations. Because this means they believe in me.”
