Success in Wayne's sights

the lads coming through under them.

How would you sum up Robin van Persie’s contribution this season?
He’s been brilliant for us and has scored a lot of goals. He fitted in straight away and is fantastic to play with – he holds the ball up well, has great movement and makes great runs. Everyone was delighted when he signed as we knew he could bring a lot to the team and he’s proved that.

What’s he like in the dressing room?
He’s fitted in really well. This club has always been brilliant at making new players feel very welcome very quickly whenever they sign, and it was the same with Robin. He’s an outgoing person who gets on with everyone.

What is this current United side like to play in?
It’s brilliant. The team spirit is always good and whenever new players come in they are always welcomed into the squad very quickly. Everyone gets on well and works hard for each other on the pitch. We have always had a great team spirit under the manager.

As well as the seasoned pros in the squad, the younger players have time on their side and are gathering experience all the time. How good do you think this team could be in three or four years?
Being successful this season is really important because it would give us a great platform to kick on in the next few years. Once the young players get their first taste of silverware with the club they’ll realise just how good it feels and they’ll want to keep doing it again and again. Hopefully they’ll get to taste it this season.
