Sir Alex Ferguson has openly admitted that he is excited by RvP’s arrival who has added the ‘attacking flair’ to the Red Devils.
The former Arsenal skipper replaced Danny Welbeck at Goodison Park, when the Reds lost 1-0 to Everton. Sir Alex said Robin did not see enough of the ball. However he believes Van Persie will tune his players.
“I am excited myself about Robin van Persie,” said Sir Alex. “He is a very good player. He brings a maturity to us up front. I am looking forward to him starring when he starts.
“The important thing for us is he brings something to the team. His goal record last year hopefully transmits itself to our goal scoring performances and gives us more of a goal edge. Wayne [Rooney] got 30 last season and he has been improving his goal total for the last few years. We need that goal contribution from all the strikers.
“We know Chicharito is capable of scoring goals in a different way to Robin and Wayne. Danny Welbeck is also a different type of player. It does give us fantastic options. That is the biggest attraction to me.”
Even though Robin van Persie did not have a pre-season with Arsenal; he might play against Fulham as they visit the Red tomorrow.
