RvP up for the challenge

Robin van Persie discusses his first meeting with David Moyes in an exclusive episode of 'Paddy Meets..' coming soon on MUTV.

Last season's leading scorer in the Barclays Premier League has joined up with the squad in Sydney after missing the opening match in Bangkok due to his summer exertions with Holland.

Keen to make up for lost time, he is relishing the challenge of firing the club to more success under the new manager.

"I came [over] a bit late," he told MUTV's Paddy Crerand during their in-depth discussion. "Yes, it was the first time I'd met David and the first time I spoke to him. He came across as really nice and I had a good [training] session yesterday.

"It is all new but sometimes it is good as well to have a new challenge and to work with new people with new ideas. It gives you a big challenge but I'm looking forward to it. Everyone looks forward to it. The guys are working hard and I have to follow now.

"Every training [session] is a big challenge - especially now everyone starts again on zero and you have to earn your place again."
