Robin van Persie ensured that United won the title in style last night by bagging a hattrick to confirm our status as champions. Having gone years at Arsenal without a title or trophy, Van Persie is delighted to celebrate his first Premier League title win, but recognises that is what we should expect from United.
“It’s a great feeling,” hetold MUTV. “I had to wait a long time and I’ve been thinking and speaking about it with Rio, for example, in the car and he’s been telling me: ‘Listen, whatever happens, that’s the standard.’ He’s right. From now on, our new standard is we want to be champions every year and we want to win more. So we are even more hungry than than we were last season because you could just tell, from day one, everyone wanted this and we did well. I want to win it again. I want to win more stuff. I want to win the FA Cup, the Champions League, the Capital One Cup. I want to win it all. This is a trophy for all of us – the management, staff, all the players and the fans have been brilliant too. They’ve been absolutely amazing, cheering us on every single game, home and away, so credit to them as well.”
