RVP Wants Long United Stay

Manchester United’s Dutch international goal machine, Robin van Persie, says he hopes to extend his stay at the club.

Van Persie made a huge impact in his first season at Old Trafford, powering United to the league title with his goals, to claim his first trophy in nine seasons of English football.

Having recently given his backing to new manager David Moyes, RVP says that he is more than content to stick it out at United for the long haul, and wants to remain there beyond his current deal.

"I have three more years to go and I would like to stay longer,” RVP told MUTV.

"I want to play as long as possible at the highest level.

“Winning trophies is what it is all about."

After winning first silverware by lifting the Premier League trophy last season, van Persie has a taste for glory.

And he says that he is now determined to fire United to success in this season’s Champions League.

The way he failed to score as they crashed out of the competition against Real Madrid last time out still hurts van Persie, and he wants to set that straight, starting against Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday night.

"It is probably my only regret about last year,” he said, recalling his inability to punish Los Blancos.

"The referee played an important part but I should have scored at least one or two goals in those games.

"I didn't, which I don't like. I have to improve on that. Hopefully we can do better this year."
