A few weeks after Robin van Persie signed for Manchester United he revealed why he had chosen the #20 shirt.
“Well, I had the option of 20 or 21 and the reason I took this shirt is because we’re all here to be champions this year and that would mean a 20th league title for United. I would certainly like to be part of that, they have had an era of dominance already and I’d like to help them do it again.”
