The Dutchman left Old Trafford to join Fenerbahce following Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement a few years back.

But now his latest comments have got people questioning why he really left United.

Check out what he said below:

Fergie will not be pleased at this!

Robin is basically saying his old Scottish boss lied about how long he would be staying, which is quite an accusation.

I guess the best way to get revenge is to bang in the goals when he plays United on Thursday.

Unless he parks the bus of course!
