RVP unfazed by Fergusonís interest in Lewandowski
Sir Alex Ferguson’s unique interest in Borussia Dortmund star Robert Lewandowski doesn’t worry Robert van Persie, or that’s what the Dutchman wants us to believe. The Manchester United striker claims he is unfazed by the prospect of Manchester United bringing in a top-drawer forward into the squad.
The former Arsenal striker claims he would welcome the new striker and the challenges he would bring for him. In the meantime, Robin van Persie is doing well to cement his place in Manchester United’s first-team.
The 29-year-old Netherlands international is the apple of Sir Alex Ferguson’s eyes and in less than a season has become the favorite son of Old Trafford. In spite of being in the spotlight and recording exceptional form under Manchester United colors, Sir Alex Ferguson is expected to believe adding Robert Lewandowski would further strengthen his attack.
Signing in Robert Lewandowski would certainly strengthen Manchester United’s attack, but this could turn out to be a move that could lead to the exit of Robin van Persie, a man who has scored 28 times for Manchester United this season and has spearheaded them towards their 20th Premier League.
“The more quality players we bring the better. And even more fun. I trust his judgment. The manager knows what is good for the team,” Robin van Persie told The Sun on Sunday.
Robin van Persie, who turns 30 this summer, promises to become a Manchester United star in spite of his age. Well, Ryan Giggs is a shining example of the glory Robin van Persie can achieve in old age at Manchester United. However, Sir Alex Ferguson might not want to lose the opportunity of signing in a talented striker like Robert Lewandowski, especially at a cut-price.
“Ryan is remarkable. I really hope that I will be able to play on until my 40s - preferably my 50s! I love the game that much, it's my life and my passion,” Robin van Persie added.
Robin van Persie also believes his 71-year-old manager, Sir Alex Ferguson should forget about his retirement party if he has any plans of moving away as the gaffer.
“I have only played under him for one year and it has been an incredible experience in so many ways,” Robin van Persie said.
Robin van Persie, who hadn’t won a single trophy in eight years at Arsenal, is exuberant to have lifted the Premier League trophy in his first year at Manchester United. The Dutchman now hopes to win more silverware at Manchester United.
“Quite simply, I now want to win as much as possible. Now I've won one big prize I'm even more eager to win more, even more eager to win it all,” Robin van Persie added. “Next season I have the Premier League, FA Cup, Champions League, Capital One Cup, Community Shield and of course the World Cup to focus on.”
