Man United striker Robin Van Persie ruled out for a month; Twitter backlash follows for David Moyes

Robin Van Persie has been struggling to regain full fitness all season and Manchester United manager David Moyes today confirmed his star striker will be out for a month with a thigh strain.

The talented Dutchman made his return in last weekend’s 1-0 home defeat to Newcastle, playing the full 90 minutes.

Man United will thus go into the busy Christmas period without their star player.

Fans on Twitter voiced their displeasure at David Moyes’s managerial methods.
