Van Persie: I haven’t taken my medal off!

Robin van Persie looked absolutely delighted to win the Premier League and so he should, after spending eight years at Arsenal and winning just one trophy, the FA Cup in 2005.

Last night thousands upon thousands of people lined the streets of Manchester to welcome our trophy back. Van Persie was made up to be a part of it.

“Everyone is so happy, it’s just incredible,” van Persie told MUTV. “This trophy is for the fans, the players, the staff… the one thing I really like is it’s made so many people so happy. You see kids, babies, women, men, all sorts of people are so happy and I’m very pleased to see that. The medal hasn’t left my neck since yesterday, it’s been here all night. The trophy’s a heavy trophy and it’s great to win it finally.”

Van Persie also exhoed the point he has made all season, that he was welcomed in to the group immediately and he’s been confident since day one they would be successful.

“It’s been really good settling in,” he added. “The boys have been really, really nice to me from day one. I’ve noticed that they want to share success and I’m like that as well. I want to have success but I want everyone to play their part in it which they did.”

    I heard him say that also; which was brilliant.
    Robin just wants to be part of our great club and build for more success.
    As Sir Alex said now go on a treble of wins.
    I must admit I had this odd vision of him ( the fantastic Dutchman) with his first Premiership medal hanging around his neck while getting up to hanky – panky with his partner.
    I guess the medal would be going tick tock.:)

    Wenger was right wen he said ‘He’s better than you think’

    Class Act

  3. Little Red Ant says:

    Just shows what winning can do to you. How happy did he look yesterday on the bus. Good on RVP, enjoying every minute of it and wanting more

  4. huntaaar says:

    Last player to finish the 2nd lap of honour on Sunday. Looked like he was loving it so much, soaking it up and giving a lot directly to the crowd on the way round.

    New United hero, are you watching Wayne?

  5. Costas says:

    Even during sex? :eek:

  6. wayne says:

    Costas went out on the piss at Rio’s last night so sex was probably not on the cards.Think West Brom would be a good bet for a win this weekend,the lads are already on holiday

    Has RVP put in a good word to get Fabregas to sign for United?

  8. Dan-young says:

    alpha, fabregas will partner wilshere if you ask me. arsenal need a marquee signing and fabregas openly wrote on twittr how he wasn’t happy rvp went to united ‘of all places’ .. id rather gundogan .. much more superior player if you ask me and dreams of playing for united

    AlphaRS @15:18: “Has RVP put in a good word to get Fabregas to sign for United?”

    Straight swap – Cesc/TheWayneBoy. Win/Win for both clubs/both players.

    It makes too much sense to actually happen.

    YEAH, we nevwer knew how good he was.

  11. mezza says:

    Hope you get to “weight” it again mate..

  12. King Eric says:

    God I love Van Persie. Class on and off pitch.

  13. Take me to Old Trafford says:

    Oh Robin Van Persie. Fuckn love this guy.

  14. Jigpig says:

    He’s really too good to be true. Lets make up for the time we haven’t had together and do the treble next year. He deserves to play for our team and we deserve him. He is a model professional.

  15. Shonaigh says:

    Class act this guys, on and off the pitch. Really didn’t like him at all at Arsenal and ashamed now to admit that I didn’t want to see him signed. What was I bloody thinking! What a revelation he has been, great player to watch and seems each one of his goals is a blinder! Always says the right things, his happiness is infectious and it is brilliant to see a player who just loves to be at United. Not only that but as others have said, he really gets what the club is all about.

  16. Alex says:


    Sorry for speaking master!

    You fucking bellend

  17. Red Indian says:

    Especially during sex.

    Get rid of Rooney once n for all
