Robin Van Persie Has Arrived
Netherlands international forward Robin van Persie has passed his medical test at Manchester United and is ready to play for The Red Devils. The reigning Footballer of the Year could now go straight into the Manchester United first team for the opening match of the campaign against local rivals Everton at Goodison Park this Monday.
Sir Alex Ferguson is quite confident that the £22 million summer signing from Arsenal will be available to make his Manchester United debut against Everton on Monday. Sir Alex Ferguson: “I am sure Robin van Persie will be available for Monday’s game. Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney are two fantastic players and it will be great to have both of them. It gives us more strength and more combinations up front. It is great to have a player of Robin van Persie’s qualities to come into the squad. I am very pleased.”
