Robin van Persie: Backed the FA's decision not to charge him

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew called on the FA to take action against Van Persie, accusing the Dutchman of elbowing Cabaye during Manchester United's 3-0 away win.

The incident was not seen by referee Howard Webb and after reviewing video footage the FA have decided no further action needs to be taken against Van Persie.

Asked about the decision from the FA over the Cabaye incident, Van Persie told voetbal.nl: "And I agree with the union."

Van Persie has quickly settled into life at United following his big-money arrival from Arsenal and the striker is enjoying his new surroundings at Old Trafford.

"It's fun and it's going well," added van Persie. "It is a great challenge.

"I will have to change a bit, but that happens in life often enough."
