Striker Robin van Persie has said that he cannot wait to get the Premier league trophy in his hands. Van Persie has managed to win his first ever league title in England with Manchester United. This is also the record 20th league title for the Red Devils, who will be presented the trophy in the final day of the season. They have managed to win the title with several matches still remaining to play. Van Persie has been one of the main reasons for this comfortable league victory. The striker has scored more than 20 goals in the league alone this season.
Van Persie has managed to lift just two major trophies since coming to England almost a decade ago. He managed to win the Community shield and the FA cup with Arsenal, but even that was almost 8 years ago. It has been a huge trophy drought with the London club, and van Persie decided to end it by moving to Manchester United – one of the most successful clubs in England. Van Persie’s hat-trick against Aston Villa helped United win 3-0, which also handed them the title as well. Even though the celebrations have started after the Aston Villa match, van Persie is keen on lifting the trophy more than anything else.
“It is the feeling you dream of. Everything is about lifting the trophy. There were some great pictures taken after the Aston Villa game, but there was one thing missing from them all – the trophy. That’s the picture that will be framed in my house – me, lifting the Barclays Premier League trophy. I can’t wait for that moment,” said van Persie in an interview given to Manchester United’s official site. The club, though, will be looking to do well in the European competitions in the next season.
