The Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has said that he does not feel any pressure for playing at Manchester United. Manchester United recently secured the signing of the Dutchman for £ 24 million. It is expected that he will be giving heavy competition to the star striker Wayne Rooney, who has been criticised for not being fit at the start of the season. Robin van Persie immediately showed his worth by scoring in the 3-2 win over Fulham during the weekend. This gave Manchester United their first win of the season. After the match, the Dutchman has said that he feels at home at Manchester United.
The signing of Robin van Persie has been extremely crucial for Manchester United in the efforts to catch arch rivals Manchester city, who won the Premier league title last season. The manager Sir Alex Ferguson could have easily gone for a foreigner, but the presence of Robin van Persie means that the club will be able to quickly settle into the style of the former Arsenal striker. The Dutchman scored more than 40 goals in all competitions last season. He recently opened his account for this season with the strike against Fulham.
“Honestly, I have to say, from day one, everyone is making me feel at home. All the players have been very nice to me, the staff, the people, the fans as well. Even in Manchester when I go out for a meal, everyone’s been very helpful to me. Of course, it’s only a week, so we have to get used to each other a bit more in the next week, but it will happen. But honestly, I feel at home. I feel fine, everyone is helping me. I try to do that as well with the other guys,” Van Persie told Sky Sports News.
