Robin van Persie has described Manchester United as 'lousy' after the club's 2-0 defeat to Olympiacos on Tuesday. He was quoted in the Mirror as saying:

"We are lousy - in a lousy position in the league, out of the cups and this looks a difficult one also.

"We are very disappointed.

"It's a tough season."

He's certainly not wrong.

There are obviously some perils into reading too much into post-match statements (and his own individually 'lousy' performances) though alongside him criticising David Moyes, the team, or something in between when speaking to Dutch TV in the wake of the defeat in Piraeus, it's not hard to see he's rather displeased.

With rumours swirling that he was promised Ferguson's tenure would extend beyond his first year at Old Trafford, as well as his supposed dissatisfaction with David Moyes and his training methods, he could well be looking for a summer exit. On current form, that doesn't sound too scary. But when considering he pretty much single-handedly carried us to the title last year, it's rather more worrying.

The massive overhaul may be even more massive than we first thought.
