Van Persie banned from taking penalty kicks for United

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal, has confirmed that Robin van Persie has dropped down the pecking order for penalty-taking duties.

The Dutch striker missed from 12 yards against West Brom on Saturday, as the Red Devils trailing 1-0 at Old Trafford – a game they eventually lost by the same margin.

Van Gaal revealed that he will soon appoint a new player for the role, with captain Wayne Rooney not in contention having missed a few weeks ago too.
When asked if his compatriot will continue taking penalties, he replied: “No. He is now at the end of the road. “It’s always like that. Wayne has missed also so, when you miss, you are at the bottom again.
“Wayne has already missed – twice, I believe – so we have penalties and we miss them.” Van Persie, who just returned from injury lay-off, has netted 10 times in 26 league games this season.
