Van Persie considers United position


Robin van Persie

MANCHESTER, June 3- Manchester United striker Robin van Persie admitted he was considering his position at the club as he looks increasingly likely to play a back-up role next season.

The Holland international endured a tough season for the Red Devils. His form was hampered by injuries and he managed just 10 goals throughout the campaign.

The 31-year-old has just over a year left on his contract at Old Trafford and revealed he wants to play regular first team football and may need to look at his options if United can’t offer it to him.

“I must evaluate the situation. The club is doing that as well. I must consider what I really want,” he said.

“If worse comes to the worst and I won’t be playing much next season, I wouldn’t be in an ideal situation with Euro 2016 coming up.

“It’s a strange, difficult situation. A new situation, that’s a better word. I have to think in a realistic way. It’s my ambition to play the next years.”

However, the former Arsenal forward added his family, who are well settled in Manchester, would play a big role in any decision he makes.

“I’m thinking about my family and my children with every decision I take. These are very important for me,” he added.

“I’m a real family guy. I think it’s fantastic to see how happy my children and wife are. That’s something I take into consideration when I’m thinking about my future.”
