Robin van Persie asked about Manchester United’s most competitive player in training

Robin van Persie is coy when asked who the most competitive Manchester United player is in training.

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has refused to name the most competitive player in training.

During an interview with United’s official website, the 31-year-old Netherlands international was asked the question, to which he gave a very diplomatic answer.

“Everyone is competitive in their own way,” said Van Persie. “You can see it when we play the short games I mentioned – you can see how badly everyone wants to win.”

Van Persie’s response to the question is quite different from those of his teammates such as Wayne Rooney and Daley Blind in previous interviews.

But perhaps the former Arsenal star has taken the right approach. Instead of naming names, Van Persie has actually hailed everyone in the squad.
