The Dutchman scored 30 goals in 2012/13 but believes he could have done more.
Manchester United striker Robin Van Persie is clearly not a player to settle for second best as the 30-year-old criticises the forward’s first season at Old Trafford.
Despite scoring 30 goals in 2012/13 after making the switch from Arsenal, the Netherlands international still thinks that more could have been achieved.
“I kept on hearing a little voice in the back of my head throughout the summer,” Van Persie was quoted in the Mirror.
“It told me that I should have put in even more effort. It was a good season, both for Manchester United and myself, but we could have gone further in the Champions League.”
The attacker has netted three Premier League goals so far this campaign, including a strike in the club’s 2-0 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.
Van Persie will get the chance to improve United’s fortunes in the Champions League when the side host Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday.
The Red Devils have an extremely tough group in the top European competition, which also features Shakhtar Donetsk and Real Sociedad.
The Dutchman picked up the player’s first English league title in Sir Alex Ferguson’s last year at Old Trafford, also collecting the division’s Golden Boot award in the process.
Van Persie netted three times in the Champions League as well, as United were knocked out of the tournament by Real Madrid at the last-16 stage.
The club have won the trophy three times in their history and twice in the new format, with the latest triumph coming in 2008.
