RVP reveals United's hour-long inquest over Leicester collapse
Robin van Persie has revealed that Manchester United conducted an hour-long inquest following the club's shocking 3-5 capitulation to newly-promoted Leicester City.
United twice took a two-goal lead at the King Power Stadium last week, only to fall apart in spectacular fashion as the Foxes pulled off one of the biggest surprises of the season to win the English Premier League match in emphatic fashion, prompting unhappy manager Louis van Gaal to order a review of the stunning defeat the day after.
While the debrief ran for at least an hour and provided some "confronting" moments, van Persie believes the team benefited from the session.
Speaking to Fox Sports, the Dutch striker said: "It shouldn't be possible, but it still happened. so we have to deal with it. We had a proper look at it the next day.
"Sometimes it was a bit confronting. It was a really good meeting as everyone spoke up and shared their feelings.
"It was a long meeting, one hour or something, but we went from there, started again this week and a couple of really good sessions in and everyone feels ready to face West Ham."
