Ruud Tips RVP For United Glory
28 November 2012
Ruud van Nistelrooy knows what it takes to fire Manchester United to glory, and he thinks he sees it in Robin van Persie.
Former Red Devil van Nistelrooy has backed his fellow Dutchman to tip this season’s English Premier League title race in United’s favour.
Van Persie has already scored eight goals in 13 league appearances for United since his £24 million defection from Arsenal.
And van Nistelrooy thinks that at this rate, RVP will inevitably become the next Dutchman to win the hearts of the United faithful.
"As he's proving right now, he is making the difference on many occasions," Van Nistelrooy said of RVP in the Daily Star.
"If he can keep going like this through the whole season, then I can see United landing another league win. It feels like he's been here for ever. He started scoring, got his first goal quickly and has never stopped ever since so hopefully it will continue.
"It's important for a striker, when he goes to a new club, to start getting his goals in and then you go on from there. That's what happened to Robin. I think he fits in really well at this club.
"He fits into United's playing style. He's everywhere, involved in the play and the finishing as well. He's special. Hopefully he can do even better than me."
