Robin van Persie has stated that he wants to remain at Manchester United not only until the end his contract, but beyond that in a new interview with the club's official website.

Speaking to, Van Persie said:"I don't mind if my performances get dissected and people criticise what I've done on the pitch. They can talk about my game 24/7 for all I care... and a lot of those opinions and criticisms may actually be right. So I don't mind that.

"What I need to address are the situations when people are taking it upon themselves to think for me, make assumptions, or interpret things as if they are me. Last time I checked my head was still attached to my body, so I'm the only one who knows exactly what I'm feeling and that is not what I or the fans have been reading.

"The truth is I'm very happy here at this club. I signed for four years and I'd be delighted to stay even longer, beyond the next two years I have left on my contract. This is how I feel, although it's not what has been suggested in the media."

So, good news, although it's not clear if something being wrong was mere speculation or whether he's had a change of heart - either way, the club wish to make this clear.

Van Pesie also outlined his relationship with Moyes, stating: "I can tell you that Moyes' sessions and the things he says in his team meetings are spot-on. I really enjoy working under him and I'm absolutely convinced things will pick up and we'll turn it around."

Good signs all round, thankfully.
