Last summer Manchester United managed to hook Robin van Persie of Arsenal. The arrival of the Dutch striker was called was like so an early Christmas present for Manchester United. Since recruited from Arsenal last summer, Van Persie direct positive effect for the ‘Red Devils’ as he scored 15 goals in all competitions. That’s why even though Christmas has just arrived, MU actually considered to be much faster to get gifts.
Sir Alex Ferguson thought that Manchester United has received an early Christmas present – at the beginning of the season, when Robin van Persie arrived at Old Trafford. Fergie does not like football very individual because he believe that the basis for the success of a football team is the team work, and instead of a team that depends on one player, but sometimes there are situations where you’re lucky enough to find one last piece of the puzzle.
Manchester United do it when bringing Eric Cantona to Old Trafford where he established himself as a player at the right time and the right club. He became a catalyst and starting point for the resurrection of our success. No need to recruit players who break the transfer record; Eric recruited only a few million. Cristiano Ronaldo did not break the transfer record but he has certainly made a difference because he grew up with us to the point where he was rated by many as the world’s best players.
Manchester United also do not spend a lot of money for van Persie, but as they are now approaching the midpoint of the season, Fergie did not hesitate to say that Persie has made a vital difference in chances to snatch the title this season.
