The midfielder of Manchester United, Ryan Giggs, has said that Robin Van Persie is one of the greatest strikers going around and if he keeps playing in the same kind of form, it would help Manchester United to regain the Barclays Premier League title in the ongoing season.
In the last season, United’s dominance in the Premier League was ended by Manchester City which won the Premier League title of 2011-12 on the basis of goal difference. The lack of goals was one of the main reasons why United didn’t manage to win the Premier League last season. But, Sir Alex Ferguson has strengthened his team this summer by bringing the former Arsenal skipper Robin Van Persie in the squad. Manchester United has paid a huge transfer fee of 24 million Pounds for buying the Dutch striker.
Persie hasn’t let the United team management down in the ongoing season so far. He has featured for United in five matches and he has found the back of the net on four occasions which is not a bad record at all. Out of those four goals, three were scored in the match against Southampton which United won by a close margin of 3-2. However, the Dutch striker injured himself while playing for Netherlands in the World Cup qualifying game against Turkey, but, he featured for United in the Champions League match against Galatasaray and he seemed to be 100% fit. He didn’t score any goal for United in that match, but, he played quite well.
On being asked whether Persie is 100% fit or he still has got a bit of niggle, Giggs said that there is nothing to worry about Persie’s fitness at the moment. He is completely fit and is ready for the match against Liverpool which is going to be played on 23rd of September.
