RVP relishing prospect of winning more trophies at Old Trafford.
Manchester United star Robin van Persie has revealed he is looking forward to the new challenge under David Moyes next season, and is determined to continue winning trophies.
The Dutchman joined the Premier League champions from rivals Arsenal last summer, and his immediate impact ensured they coasted to the title as he topped the goal-scoring charts.
However, the club will have an anxious pre-season as they begin life without Sir Alex Ferguson, with Moyes set to replace the United legend after 26 years in charge at the club.
Despite the departure of the influential Scotsman, van Persie is fully focused on continuing to bring trophies back to Old Trafford.
“This is a great bunch of players. Everybody wants to work for each other and share the success,” van Persie told reporters as quoted by Sky Sports.
“I’m 100 per cent sure we will play for trophies every year and, hopefully, win a few every year. That’s our standard for this team.
“Of course, we get a new manager next year and everybody is looking forward to that. It’s a new challenge for everyone. We’ll have a nice break now and go again.”
The 29-year-old spearheaded Ferguson’s title hunt this season with his goals, but after picking up his second consecutive Premier League top scorer award, he thanked his team-mates and wished to share the trophy with them.
The former Arsenal striker is targeting winning the double next season, and believes the standard at the club demands that they challenge on all fronts and continue their tradition of winning silverware both domestically and in Europe.
There is a great deal of uncertainty over the future of van Persie’s team-mate Wayne Rooney, but it appears the Dutchman is ready to help Moyes usher in a new era of success in the red half of Manchester.
