Van Persie hungry for more success

It might be the end of an era at Old Trafford following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson but Robin van Persie is eyeing-up the start of a new one under David Moyes.

Van Persie had grown increasingly frustrated at his failure to add to the FA Cup he won with Arsenal in 2005, therefore made the move to Old Trafford last summer. Not only has he won a Premier League medal since joining United but the golden boot for the second year running.

But it doesn’t end there for the Dutchman.

“I am not thinking I have my medal and this is it,” Van Persie told MUTV. “It tastes beautiful. But I know how it feels now and I want more. That is the idea of all the lads. It is a great feeling to achieve it. We can enjoy it. It only gives you the taste for more. Hopefully next season we can win the double.”

The move was always going to upset Arsenal fans. He was their captain and best player; one they should a large deal of loyalty to. But the reason he made the move was a no brainer. When you look at the best players to play the game, you take note of their achievements. A player of Van Persie’s class deserves to have league and European titles to his name. At Arsenal, that wasn’t happening.

“I do think it is important for a player to win medals,” he said. “You play football to win. If you add up all those wins it has to end up in a big trophy.”

  1. RVP by any standards had a ‘terrific’ season…. fabulous start, quiet middle and a decent finish.
    But, it wasn’t just the goals…. it was the pin-point corners; it was the defending in United’s box; it was the tackling back, helping the midfield and back four; and it was his general attitude to being a ‘team player’ and not a seasoned superstar.

    What a first season captured in two very similar moments of ‘genius’.
    The first was the sublime touch to take a wonderful pass from Giggs and slot the ball home in the game against West Ham and the second was the equally brilliant volley following a glorious pass from Rooney in the final game at OT this season.

    So! am I looking forward to watching RVP next season…. You betcha.

    P/s…. And, for all that, I still think Carrick just…. I say just, pipped him to my player of the year.
