RVP: I Should Have Scored More

Robin van Persie is disappointed with his season’s goal return thus far.

Perhaps the Dutchman has set Messi-like standards for himself, considering his haul of 18 league goals for Manchester United.

RVP is the EPL’s top scorer, and his scorching form in front of goal has propelled the Red Devils to the top of the table.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has even gone on record to say that van Persie could well be the difference in the title race this season.

Even so, the former Arsenal striker is not satisfied with his achievements, and insists that he should have scored more goals for United than he already has.

"It should have been 10 games, 14 or 15 goals," van Persie said.

"At least four or five I shouldn't have missed. It's not going really well. It is going well but if you start to believe it's going well, you're going down.

"If I look at all those games, I should have done better in most of them because I had more chances than just one chance and one goal."

The good thing for van Persie is that at Manchester United he feels he is in the right environment to attain even greater heights.

"It's like a kid in a sweet shop,” he said of his new life at Old Trafford.

“It's like: 'Yes, this is nice, this is good, this is having fun, this is enjoying yourself.' All these little things added together make a big difference.

“It makes me feel that I'm surrounded by champions."
