    Robin Van Persie - I will miss friend Nemanja Vidic and so will United

    “We became very close in those last two years and I do count him as one of my very best friends. When I think of him as a footballer, Nemanja puts his head where other players are scared to put their feet. I see him diving sometimes to block a ball and when I'm witnessing that I'm scared for him, scared that something bad happens to him. But, this is Nemanja... unbelievable! The way he defends, the way he lives his life is incredible. I will miss him, Manchester United will miss him but Inter Milan can feel very lucky to have him for the next few years.”

    Paul Scholes - don’t blame Steven Gerrard for England defeat to Uruguay





    http://www.anrdoezrs.net/click-2051413-11392089


    "There’s no way you can blame Steven Gerrard for not getting more on the ball from a header in the middle of the park for Luis Suarez’s second goal. The defenders didn’t sense the danger. Joe Hart has looked a bit shaky too – but we don’t really have anyone to replace him. The Liverpool and England captain hasn’t had a great tournament by his standards. He’s not the box-to-box player he once was. Brendan Rodgers recognised this at Liverpool and they’ve adjusted his style of play to get the maximum from him. It’s not easy to keep up those high levels of performance – particularly after the season he’s had with Liverpool’s title challenge."

    in the Times


    "I felt for him over the criticism he took. He’s a shy boy, a humble boy, a quiet personality. Despite appearances - the hair makes him look like an extrovert - he’s a gentle, sometimes, emotional soul who is so desperate to do well and he was hurting because he wasn’t able to show his true self at the start of his United career. Without going over old ground regarding last summer’s transfer window, I want to make two points. The last thing we wanted was to make him my first signing as United manager and the only signing of the summer. That was always going to bring too great a spotlight on him. But by the time we got to deadline day the club hadn’t been able to close a couple of big deals and there was no choice. His size is such a threat to the opposition. He’s technically gifted, especially when it comes to chest control, and he’s formidable in the air - though, actually, I feel he should score more headers than he does. He can run. He has brilliant fitness, a brilliant attitude. What we saw him do against Algeria was what I brought him to Manchester United for. He took time to settle at Old Trafford but in the final month of last season was becoming an influence, a different sort of player to the ones already there and one who was having an impact in games and helping produce goals. I feel he still has the potential to go on and be a good United player."

    Whilst Luiz Felipe Scolari rejects Van Gaal hint that Brazil will decide their result on how they can finish

    “We have to win. Some people sometimes make comments without understanding things, saying we’re going to choose our opponents; either they’re stupid or ill-intended. Fifa chose the schedule. When people say Brazil can choose their opponents, they put us in a very difficult situation, it’s disrespectful towards Cameroon and I don’t like it. I don’t have to choose my opponent, I have to play and win. Some people expressed a view that we were going to choose who we were going to play. Those sorts of comments are either stupid or ill-intentioned, I repeat stupid or ill-intentioned. We have to play to qualify, not pick and choose our opponents. It was FIFA who chose the kick-off time. You are putting emphasis on somebody who is talking nonsense."

    presume as it can affect when they may face each other


    “Fifa, for every match they have this advertisement around fair play. Fifa plays these tricks. It’s not a good thing. It’s not fair play. We’re going to focus on a victory tomorrow against Chile and I don’t think that will be affected by the fact Brazil will play after us. I am just assuming Brazil will do their sporting duty. Why on earth are they [Fifa] doing that? That is the question.”

    Wayne Rooney wants England to carry this pain into the next tournament


    "It's vital we take the pain we are feeling now and remember that and the next tournament we don't want to feel that again. It's difficult for us, but more for the fans. What is it? 48 years? It's tough, each tournament going into it ... we've let them down. Roy has brought a lot of youth and excitement into the team. It hasn't worked out for us in this tournament, but he's certainly got his plans set in place for us in the next two years."

    Wayne Rooney thinks England need to be more nasty


    “You look at teams who have won the tournament over previous years and you can see that nastiness in them. I think we have to get that in us. We're maybe we're too honest, I feel, as a team. Uruguay committed I don't know how many fouls, clever fouls, really, which slow the game down. I think we're a bit honest in terms of the way we play. It's small margins, but those small things can amount to a big thing in terms of staying in the competition or going out. You see players surrounding the referees — I'm not saying Uruguay did that — but I'm the same now. I want to win the game. I got kicked 10 times and I don't think there was a yellow card given to an opponent. We try and be honest, but maybe that's a fault."

    Robin Van Persie on what England need to do next


    Robin Van Persie shirt RVP UTD now just £9.99 - http://www.rednews.co.uk/shop/items.php?itemid=41


    “Now it’s up to the FA to have a proper look and see where England can go in the future. It’s very important to invest in youth, in good coaches and facilities for youngsters to play. There are loads of companies trying to encourage people to play more sport. The more hours you spend playing football, combined with good coaches, that is what makes you a better player. So it is important is to invest in youth and try to develop young players.”

    Robin Van Persie defends Wayne Rooney’s World Cup performances


    Robin Van Persie shirt RVP UTD now just £9.99 - http://www.rednews.co.uk/shop/items.php?itemid=41


    “I watched most of the game against Italy and the whole game against Uruguay, and I think it is a shame. England played quite well and were so unlucky. Wayne worked his socks off, played very well and could have scored four goals so I don’t think he is to blame. Wayne is a great player. As I’ve said many times, Wayne was partly the reason I came to Manchester United. I never regretted saying that because by training and playing with him he’s shown me that he’s a world class player. He’s a great player and a great goalscorer. He is always under massive pressure and that has been his life since he made his debut. He hit an unbelievable free-kick, had a good shot saved by the keeper, a header which hit the bar and he scored a goal. He’s not to blame, he gave his all for his country. It’s not fair to criticise him so much. He missed three chances by inches, and that is the thin line between winning and losing, between going home and going through.”

    Rio Ferdinand on Wayne Rooney criticism


    border="0">




    "I think in the Uruguay game he reacted quite well, in terms of he got in positions to score goals, he had a couple of chances that maybe he would have expected himself to do a little bit better in. On another day he would have banged that left footed shot in definitely. Then he still got in and scored a goal and he was our most productive player on the day in terms of getting chances and putting one in the back of the net, so I said he reacted in response to the first game where he didn’t really look like scoring. But at the end of the day, England will be judged and so will the players, and Wayne Rooney is our talisman and he will be judged accordingly. I’m sure he’s man enough to take any criticism that is going to come his way if it does."
